Maps

Guide through centuries,

Unexplored destinations,

Within reach, maps bring,

North, South,West, East, play key roles,

Traveller’s unseen angel.

Deciphering these,

A perfectionist’s pride,

Clear lines drawn to scale,

Oh! like doodles appears to me,

Lost even with map, that’d me!!

Poetry form :- Double Tanka (Two tanka with 5/7/5/7/7 syllables each.)

Thoughts behind the tanka :- Maps are known to guide us. But not for me, I get lost even with one. Blame it on my map reading skills (Lack of it, rather).
