Silently Flows the River Luit

Fog rising quietly from River Luit on the morning of December 25, 2017

It was Christmas Day morning at the largest inhabited river island in the world, Majuli. Majuli is home to the Vaishnavite monasteries ( Satras – 32 of them). Walking by the banks of River Luit, I was greeted with a thick blanket of fog silently rising from the river.  It was a scene to behold on the cold winter’s morning. The silence was as thick as the fog. I stood mesmerized by the river bank as the fog slowly dispersed with the rising sun.


The cold, quiet morning, the freshness, and the silently flowing river, it was just enchanting.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
