FO-RESTED

a poem by Nishu Mathur, India

It was an eco friendly hotel
With eco friendly rooms
It had been mopped, swept and cleaned
With eco friendly brooms

The lobby had a lotus pond
Rife with creepers and vine
'Twas sprayed in aromatic fragrances
With a hint of tangy lime

The gallery was a garden
Smiling with flowers that spun
Dewdrops rolled on leaves
As they danced in the sun

The carpets were a woody green
The curtains an ocean blue
The beds were done up in snow white quilts
On an earthy mound in mountain hue

Soaps were born of sandalwood
Gels were of eucalyptus oil
Shampoos sang of deodar trees
Everything was of the soil

The creams were aloe vera
Lotions touched with pine
Toothpaste was herbal and neem
Why would it stay behind?

There I stopped and freshened
My feet I let them rest
And by the time I'd scrubbed and cleaned
I felt like a forest
