I was in Johannesburg for a business meeting, had nothing to do during the weekend so decided to go to see the Grand Victoria falls in Livingstone, Zambia. The flight of 1:45 hr was very relaxing and the stay also was very pleasant at one of the hotels there. When I embarked on my destination "The Victoria Falls", I was already in awe of it after hearing from the local people on how majestic the falls are. When I reached the exact place and saw the breath taking view with my own eyes.....I was speechless. Could not help but to write the experience in the form of a short poem. Here it is:
I found an astonishing place far away from my home,
travelled thousands of miles right there in Livingstone.
The river Zambezi, placed there on the landscapes just right,
And the grand Victoria falls showing me their passion and might.
I see the river upside down hanging from that bungee rope,
All faces smiling, all eyes beaming; it certainly is the abode of Hope.
A small but audacious bird chirping and sitting on the Hippo’s back,
And I clicked the moment timeously standing from the river cruise’s deck.
The sunset over the river displaying the spectrum of color and shade
And I, watching the phenomenon spellbound; wondering, how He made.
Crossing the Victoria bridge right through the rainbows,
While hearing the thundering sounds of the falls coming from very close.
That lonely tree still holding its grip on the edges of the fall,
O almighty, you and only you can do this all.
