Kashmir, exquisite!

The beauty of nature is wildly abundant here

As though all the birds and bees have retreated here for respite

The land is green as far as the eye can see and hills cuddle the vibrant town

Eagles circle and glide freely above, waltzing around scattered clouds

In the distance the sun is gleaming, dancing on Dal Lake

Snow-capped peaks beyond all this bring a cooling and refreshing glow to the horizon

It’s like Eden as I bird watch, the branches bobbing under the weight of the birds

Their insistent dusk calls amplified make me feel like I am at the highest point

The song of nature is here in the hills, the air so crisp and clear

Streams of water chorus from all directions soothing the earth

Beyond the boundary a rice paddy with puzzle shapes of green

Glitters as it catches the last of the sunlight

Allah! Allah! Allah! The mosque resounds

And I embrace with all gratitude that which brought me here.     — Pamela Tosh
