I am Home

Diary of a Haiku Traveler – Fifth Entry

Seventh Month, First Day

Location: New Delhi, India

Temperature: 40 Degree Celsius. Home is always cool.

I felt so good when my bus crossed the borders of Delhi. The known faces and places went pass the bus and I knew I was home, to the place I love. Sadly, I am back only for a week before I head back to Bhatinda with dad.

A certain joy was right there in my dad’s eyes as he got down from the bus. The joy usually found in that of a little kid’s eyes when he comes back home. I admit I missed my city and no place on planet Earth can be like Delhi.

Bus passes the toll
I see the same roads and shops
dear home, my home

Metro trains and cars
preposterous auto wallahs
that’s my Delhi

Old Delhi
