Elusive Moments

  • Aju Mukhopadhyay

Abstract

Nights would end before clocks could strike four 


And we’re ready to make a score;


Light of dawn greeted us with blessings


But Nature played hide and seek


With clouds and rains, haze and lightning. 


Every moment seemed better than before;


 As we’re ready to score


Clouds blocked the sunrays


Falling on the majestic peaks


Leaving us eagerly to seek


The moment again.


Sometimes big white cloud-boats sailed


Sometimes darkening hounds bayed


Over the mountains.


 Clouds became pregnant with rains;


Particles of rains blurred our views


Soon they fell all around


Over the hills and dales, woods and rivers.


At intervals morning Sun greeted 


The snow covered peeks with its golden rays


And the silvery heads


Of the mountain held their sway;


We snapped them before they were faded


But next moment they became more accurate,


Swaying from side to side, the glorious peaks


Challenged the beauty of each other,


Each next moment differed from the earlier


Keeping us away from the best, forever.
