Chasing the Sunset: Over the river Kopai, Shantiniketan.

The July sun was set to descend over the horizon,

to bury itself into the red earth of Shanti Niketan;

when I hired a Toto ride – to the river Kopai’s site,

to view the sun’s immersion, in its slender frame.

 

The smooth curvy road, through rustic landscape,

flanked sun’s tangerine hue, riding trees, harvests:

A man driving bullocks arrested my speeding sight –

just as you rein your errant dreams with a mission.

 

Sun’s orange glow raced dividing forest from sky,

as one’s purpose determines failure from success:

I permitted the orange balloon to lead my mission –

keeping me racing to my goal – the Kopai at sunset.

 

At the bridge before my goal – in line with my vision,

the Kopai river looked lean as goals do on completion:

I pursued further – finding a pink temple I stopped at,

where I was bestowed a sunset at its magnificent best.
