People of Himalayas

People of Himalayas

World’s most beautiful mountains,
Hidden hot spring fountains.
Hundreds of languages and cultures,
gods, temples and sculptures.

Farming to make living,
villages live by giving,
Road many days away,
porters and mules find their way.

Porters making their way up to the mountains

People so humble always with a smile,
Ready to fulfill your desire.
Poor and rich at the same time,
we could learn from them for awhile.

In many ways they live in the past,
But in calendar year 2073, a forecast?
Maybe they know what the future brings,
happiness is in the simple things…

One thought on “People of Himalayas

  1. The colorful aesthetic of the people in contrast to the white rugged landscapes of the Himalayas is really something spectacular. Those children look adorable!
