If The Stone Sinks ...

We visited Khewra Salt Mines two weeks back.There we saw a mysterious lake,about which our guide said, " Throw a stone into it. If it sinks , your wish will some true! " It was a joke. Lake water in Khewra Mines is laden with high amounts of salt , increasing its surface gravity so much so that its impossible to drown a human, let alone a stone.I wrote a little poem about it.

Before you let your
tempest thunder
shower me with
cold-hearted censures;

as if by accident,

few words of love
as lifebuoy
as salt,

to keep me 
from drowning.

    All good wishes,


  3. Hakuna,

    Very nice poem. And so true as few words of love do make one bear a lot of pain. I am little perplexed at the property of lake water as no matter how thick viscosity of any fluid is, anything thrown in it will sink, even in honey but may be after some time.

    Take care

  4. I never knew this fact about this lake..nice poetry

  5. Interesting lake, and nice words there
