New Poem [Terra Incognita]

After a lot of stress, finally my exams are over. It feels great when you get over your exams but for me, I don't know why, it's a little upsetting. I'll really miss these phase of life. I was settled into this. Now for Post-graduation, I've to set myself in a different way and that will really be a hard thing to do.
My PC bugged me a lot. So, I couldn't reply to your comments. I apologize. And, here is my apology, I've written a new poem-

A picture of Taiping Mountain Forest Railway.

Terra Incognita

An early-monsoon wind of hope,
Leads me to the greens,
Phoenix’s abode, merry-land.
I be fledged, I be pleased.
I feel mounted with everything.

Name-less blossoms here and there,
Blooms to catch me, my soul
Reflects that part of bliss.
Purpled grief, blued twinge, and,
Bit of golden despair retrogress.

The sunlight makes trails gleam.
A secret cul-de-sac opens up,
Ends up with wonder, scepticism,
That where a place unseen yet,
Lied still stealthily, out of reach.

Promptly rises a silhouette,
With a sense of cold-breath.
No shadow it was, a piece of cloud,
Grey in colour and so in hue,
Waiting for a sudden outburst.

Mist comes, mist goes, transient,
Sun plays hide-n-seek,
Gently hovers around me with mirth,
Fills me with heavenly brightness.
My eyes stare astounded.

I am filled with ecstasy,
But my mind displeased,
It’s the time to part,
My embodied soul cries,
I must be here again and again.

Please let me know how did you like it.

    This about sums up the feel and the awe of being atop the highest point of Maxwell Hill, Caulfields Hill. It was for our endurance run up and down the hill decades ago when I was still a schoolboy. I wonder whether it's allowed to go to that point now. I remember there was a transmission station up there. We had gallons of cool, cold drinks (which was a mistake for some)before making our way down. Lots of fun.Thanks for the memory. Sayantini!
