Nagalapuram - Oct 1 & 2 - Moderate Trek - CTC

A write-up or whatever!

The Team

To be found, one must be first lost,
We’ll get to the campsite whatever be the cost.
Strength of the wolf is the strength of the pack,
Even desperation gives the strength you lack.
Hearken to them, the beat,
Of your heart, louder than the thunder that promises escape from heat.
Let them scream, let them curse
You will have days for your body to nurse.
The ecstasy that gives the view
The few who’ve reached there alone knew.
Worn out soles or broken toes
Forward our step always goes.
Envy them, the leaves that wither and fall 
from the mountains so very tall
For, only they have unheard tales for us all.
Knees may tremble out of fear
While sliding a slope the end of which you don’t see anywhere near.
Thank your feet, for, despite the pain, they bear you through every slope that rise
Though it is the eyes which always enjoy the views wondrous and nice,
What can one do but freeze,
When at the top one hears the music of the gentle breeze.
Heights and nights will always fail
To stop us wildly shaking our tail
We are still the untamed ape
Though the tails miss our present shape.
How we’d like to spend a day
Jumping and hopping all the way.
Wiping the sweat and blood off the punctured skin
We get ready for the adventures to this akin.

Up, up

#10: she still says she can't see me. How couldn't she? Her eyes are right there, staring at me from my plate.

சர்க்கரைக் கோலமிடுவோம்

எல்லைகள் மறைந்து
தொல்லைகள் தீர்ந்து
தோலாலும், தொழிலாலும் ஆன
வேறுபாடு மாறுபட்டு
பட்டினி சாவுகள் இன்னொரு பகல் காணா
நாள் அதனை நான் காண்பேனோ!

ஆயுதங்கள் ஒன்று திரட்டி
பாலங்கள் பல அமைத்து
கண்டங்கள் நாம் இணைத்து
சண்டைகள் அவை மறந்து
மனம் மகிழ்ந்திடும் நாள் அதனை
நானும் என்று காண்பேனோ!

தேன் தெளித்து வாசலில்
சர்க்கரைக் கோலமிடுவோம்,
படபடக்கும் வண்ணத்துபூச்சிகளும்
எந்திரமாய் ஓடிடும் எறும்பு கூட்டமும்
கூடி விருந்துண்ண.

மானும் மானிடமும்
யானும் நீயும்
பசி, பழி, பகை, பாபம்
யாவும் மறந்த
பகல் ஒன்று இனி புலர
நாளெல்லாம் நான் ஏங்குவேன்.
