All Around : The Journey of A River

Written by: Soumya Mukhija

From the dark hole I rose

Off the rocks I was bound

Falling along with the edges

To find hills all around


I got up to the slope

Rising and falling to the ground

Splashing along with the edges

To find trees all around


I was soon on a smooth fall

Down the high mount

Cutting its strong edges

To find the valley huts all around


I finally took for the ocean

My ears of a whooshing sound

Trampling over the stone edges

To find my mother all around.
