The Homecoming

Chugged, the train, on a roll
Screeching to a swift halt.
I jumped, quick, a happy doll
A pleasure, both sweet and salt

The morning, fresh, and dew clear
Lazily lifting fog, and wet earth
Walking along, a hero`s tread
With pride, adventure so near

Filled the lungs, of sweetest air
Whistling along, a hip hop song
Wind sweeping my gentle hair
Smiling at the birds, road so long.

Amidst crowded buffalo herds
Trotting upon paddy fields
Greeting sunshine with pleasant words
On my toes, with restless heels.

At the gate, floating at heart
Fluttering butterflies, a thousand,
Fluttering in my stomach; I shout!
“I`m home!” Home sweet home!

home is where the heart is and it holds so true everywhere.nobody likes to be displaced from it,least of all me.
A lovely poem to pass the day
have a great day,sri :)

Srijith Unni said...

@Maya : That`s so true. Home is really where the heart is, It always is. But one thing i`ve noticed is that when we are displaced, the journey back to home once in a while gives you the kind of happiness, which I may not get when I stay at home for 1 month.
YOu too have a great day. Have Fun.

Rose said...

Wow! this was exactly how i felt when i used to come back to Kerala on semester brks during my MBA.. There is nothing that feels more blissful than home..

:)

..Me

Srijith Unni said...

a country fellow said...

wish my parents were in our village in kottayam. i jus cant do stuff like this wen i go to trivandrum. it does feel good, but not that much.

surajsharma said...

hello sir,
thanks for stopping by on my blog. Your blog is marvellous as well, and to me, in some ways, you and your blog are reminiscent of the old show "Malgudi Days", which of course, is a compliment :)

Srijith Unni said...

@ country fellow : I understand city life just cannot ever bring us in the proximity which we need with nature and the feeling of being @ home.. Very true. Though Trivandrum is also in Kerala, it cannot have the lush beutiful country side of Kottayam. ;-) In fact you being "a country fellow" I understand you perfectly.

@Suraj : Suraj, You know what ?? That was an awesome compliment..! "Malgudi Days" is a masterpiece, the stories as well as the show. Thanks a lot! Do keep visiting. :)

Amimu said...

Srijith Unni said...

@amimu : Thanks a lot!, Do come back!

Marthyan said...

Srijith Unni said...

@Marthyan : Hi!, Thanks a lot for the appreciation. I am so happy you could relate to it!
