A Delightful Monday Morning

Aishani Majumdar


A delightful Monday morning,

All to myself.

Purple Moorhen, Red Naped Ibis and Little Cormorant,

Hard at work: all by themselves.

I was amazed to spot the Open Billed Stork

Using its beak like a fork.

Boating on the quiet Irai Lake, twenty five feet deep,

Felt as if I was sailing on a giant that was asleep.

A little fish jumped into our boat,

Perhaps trying to escape the croc’s throat.


Now wasn’t that a delightful morning near the Tadoba Moharli Gate?

I indeed had some good fate!

With serene nature to relish,

And bring home memories to cherish!
