Final Travel

Ticket was booked long back
On the day of arrival 
Departure was scheduled
Seat not assigned

Itinerary posted and lost
Repeated requests to travel agent
Is not being answered
Busy or gone missing
Visited all purported offices
Returned empty handed
Final travel certain
Timing uncertain
No preparation needed
Neither carry on
Nor checked in
No fees for extra baggage
A fun trip perhaps
No travel brochures
Destination, to somewhere
Sight unseen

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.

      1. No, no failure, Pranab. That is precisely the best about poetry, literature and art in general. There are always many interpretations. What any critic does is just provide solid argument and reasoning. I so love this compared to math where everything always has to be exact. Yes, that is my failure in math… Can’t stand its exactness, problem-solving and abstract ways.

      2. Everything has its usefulness in life. It is said that musicians make great mathematicians.
        Yes, interpretations may vary and that’s where the beauty lies in diversity. A monochrome world would be boring.

    1. We still have a long way to go. The white bearded one has just facilitated our meeting. The swords are just getting sharpened. Let’s have some more fun. 😂The final travel is always there, can wait for some more time. We have paid our dues.
