Poem - An Ode to Hampi

Oh, what are the odds?⁣⁣⁣

Of your work,⁣⁣⁣
that you carved, sculpted and perfected,⁣⁣⁣
being mere pillars
that people, years later,⁣⁣⁣
just walk past.⁣⁣⁣
Oh, what are the odds?⁣⁣⁣
Of your art,⁣⁣⁣
that was your life’s achievement,⁣⁣⁣
that was your muse⁣⁣⁣
and creation, all together,⁣⁣⁣
being nestled in ruins,⁣⁣⁣
of what was once, ⁣⁣⁣
your home.⁣⁣⁣
Oh, what are the odds?
Of a glorious empire,
one of the richest in the world,
now being mere crumbling wreckage.

Acres and acres of ruins
singing an ode to the beautiful times it once had.

Hey there :) Calling myself a writer seems a little too good to be true, so I just say: I write. I also like exploring new places and music when I'm not curled up reading a book or binge-watching.
