AMIDST THE CHINAR TREES

Vividly I remember

Walking

Amidst the Chinar trees

The cool breeze

sweeping

overhead me

crackling twigs leaves

Underfoot

I scurried through

shimmering shadows

Pungent

with Autumn air

The golden leaves

sliding all across

in a forest of

downy flake

I view long stretches

Of lush verdure

With excitement and

Pleasure.

The snow melt gurgling

streams

Coursing rocky boulders

Causing

a  musical churgling

the kashmir birds

kasture ,bulbul, bill-bi–chur

  huddling in herds

chirping in symphony

 a lullaby.

  A siesta

      under the sprawling trunk

       on golden downy hay

     made my pretty

day .

  1. Chinar is a leitmotif of Kashmir ….whenever we see a chinar….Kashmir with its verdure & whatever one associates with it …..spreads out in your mental canvas…
    …..The mention of Bil- be-chur,Bulbul & Kostur ….the birds…specific to our motherland are immensely…
    nostalgic .!!!

  3. Though I have never visited Kashmir, but the beauty can be felt through your poem.

    And wherever​ it may be, the breeze among the trees, the sunrise midst the hills, the birds all these things brings an amazing feeling from within..
