Learnings from Leh
How do you put in words an experience so surreal,
it taught me so much, that I came back a different person.
It showed me the pallet of God,
has colours beyond my imagination,
I always knew blue had million shades,
Now I know even brown has so many hues.
It showed me the value of my breath,
why it should be deep and slow,
I had studied about respiration,
Now I learnt how to breathe.
It showed me brilliance of nature,
how mountains, rivers and desert meet,
I had always understood diversity,
Now I know it could co-exist.
It showed me simple red cheeked people,
who smiled at adversity,
I knew about stress and coping,
Now I know a little more about living.
It showed me how the bitter cold,
was no match for warmth and laughter,
I knew travel broadens the mind,
Now I know it opens the heart lot more.
