THE RIVER SAGE
Chenab, with sudden twist and roar,
Makes a perfect arch and flows along
To do a similar thing just north of “Gaur”
And floods my senses with a sensual song.
At Ambaran it southward turns and goes
To ancient town Akhnoor and seems to say,
“Have I put some thought unto your brows:
For you are lost and I am on my way.
Why swim against the currents of your life?
Why not to take the path of least resistance
And like me negotiate the stress and strife
To add some color to your blank existence?”
I wonder at the truth of what it says!!
Is it a river or a sage?
