The Malady of Wanderlust


Fear jazzed with angst on the tip

of my tongue. churning stomach,

knots wrung. Stranded entangled,

in a maze of roads, my heart rose,

ticked as a clock with battery low.

 

The curvaceous roads to NathuLa

pass, surrounded by them mystical

mountains echoed and forewarned

at each turn; curvy Tsmago lake,

can be lethal, a meandering snake.

 

Axis of life is not linear either.

On a tufted path, why flirt with

an ebb and flow, desist charm

of a gravitational pull, of a mind

wandering, your consistent ally?

 

Prey, is it numbness or ennui?

or adrenaline rush, the vice?

Alighting from the peak of the

NathuLa Pass. I felt home.

As much a nomad is permitted.

 

Ah!

Wanderlust;

The incurable malady!

    1. Thank you,Suchita. This journey was also about conquering the fear of uncertain circumstances. The narrow roads, misty mountains and broken bridges, it was a tiny sliver of hope between life & death that held our nerves together.I am glad you found resonance in my verse.
