Roses in the farm

It was spring as I remember

Her face beamed,

As zephyr brushed her hair

She smiled,

Seeing roses in the farm

Singing aloud,

Waiting for her man

She wrote another song

Seasons passed…

Woke up with a jolt,

She looked around the empty room

Rubbing her eyes,

She gazed through the porch

It was snowing,

And there were no roses in the farm.

 

Reaching the Mountains

These pictures are from my trip to Leh (India) in 2011. They are bit crude as not taken from a DSLR. Leh is located in the Ladakh region of India at an altitude of about 12,000ft. Few years ago, it was one of the remote areas but after the surge in the trend of adventure travel, it now sees more tourists than ever. It took us 4 days to reach Leh from New Delhi. This post focuses on the variation of mountains I saw on my way to Leh.

Enroute to Leh, we crossed the Valley of Kashmir. Needless to mention, it is an epitome of natural bounty.

It was strange to see the arid mountains after arriving at such high altitude. And snow peak mountains were calling us!

Image

The more we elevated, the more arid and barren it got. No gas station at sight or road for that matter. Just an open land and the sky.

And in the lap of these arid mountains hid a monastery. Splendid View.

Image

After reaching Leh, we made our way to the highest motor able road in the world called Khardung La. And no wonder we saw snow!

Image

It was infact so snowy that our SUV slipped, so we walked in the misty mountains like it was planned!

Image

Crossing the snowy mountains, again we found desert mountains but this time with a wonderful view of Pangong Lake. Bliss.

I couldn’t come to the terms that I was not in paradise!
