I met her at Kausani in an evening dusky and rainy,
She attracted me, as if known for years many.
Welcome me raising her large eyes to my face,
Our four eyes met and made everything in mess.
She expressed her happiness on her bright face.
In the breezy evening my heart was in a brisk pace.
Her room was in a corner on the same floor of mine,
We shared the balcony to view the peaks and pine.
Our eyes were meeting while watching the peaks few,
I was gazing her beauty with the nature that she knew.
In windy weather, hairs were out of control of hers,
She put her shawl down, raised her arms to knot the hairs.
I found her slim body turned to a great posture,
Raising her “peaks”, beautiful and inviting,
she appeared to be, to me a beautiful painting,
She looked at me, I mutely thanked for her gesture.
After rain and wind, calmness prevailed in the mountains,
We were alone but unable to come closure, suffered the pains.
At last she looked at me and stepped to the terrace,
Wanted me to follow her to be with me face to face.
She smiled at me and hinted me to follow,
She took me to the clouds in the valley below.
While walking with her on the clouds under the sky,
I told her I had seen you somewhere, don’t be shy.
Tell me your name my dear lady, if I am right,
With smile, large and black eyes she was bright.
She said I am Kausani, don’t you know my dear?
She smiled and wanted my name to hear.
Suddenly my dream ended due to bang of sound,
I discovered myself in my bed but she was never found.
About Kausani & the poem : During my visit to Kausani I was astonished by the beauty of the hill station. Not only the beauty, a heavenly calm prevails there which inspire to think about the vastness and beautiful creation of the God. The climate of the place changes frequently and clouds comes down to the valley at a lower level. The beautiful natural beauty, calmness, clouds and Himalyan peaks standing tall at the horizon inspired me to bring out the poet in me to compose the above poem.

The view of peaks from Kausani is absolutely wonderful. But when the peaks are not visible, it looks like an ordinary town. Hope it doesn’t go down the way other hill stations take because of extra commercialization.

Thanks for your visit to my site. When the peaks are visible, it disappoints a lot. But beauty, serenity of the place remains. Only travelers get disappointment. I agree with you that it should remain as it is now and too much tourism and commercialization will spoil the beautiful hill station.
