Reaching the Heaven

As the heat is killing me in Mumbai
I want to slip into the haven

into the pine woods with birds perched on
into the canvas with colors vivid colors spilled on

into the Himalayas
into the Glaciers
into the valleys
into the streams

I want to slip into the haven
into the history of century old temples
into the alluring world of monasteries

into the Rappelling
into the Paragliding
into the Skiing
into the Rafting

I want to slip into the haven
into the heaven on Earth..called Himachal ...

Written for Three Words Wednesday Prompt : Allure Perch Vivid.

P.S. I would be going for a 8-day trip to Himachal Pradesh. Its the place I have always wanted to go.


  1. This one is rather interesting. The repetition works well to lull the reader into the peace promised by "the haven".

    And you might be able to sell it to a tourist bureau or travel agency someplace. *grin*

  2. Nicely, this makes me want to slip into the haven too.

  3. haven from heat is always welcome and you make it sound devine
