Adventure | The Neemrana Fort Palace

A Poem & Illustration by Amy Fleuriot
A palatial playground free to roam 
Through hidden passages 
Carved from stone 
~
Picture perfect every turn
Palms sway gently 
In terracotta urns 
~
Swallows, peacocks
Emerald parrots
Swoop about above the turrets 
~
Flowering bougainvillea and vine
Paint the walls 
In their colourful entwine
~
Perched upon the mountain side
Near an ancient stepwell
Explored by camel ride
~
Overlooking Neemrana below
Where life moves fast
Here it's blissfully slow
~
30 degrees and clear blue above
Chattering insects
Chirp with soft grey doves
~
A small brass bell that can be rung
For poolside cocktails 
In the sun
~
When night falls pink
With the setting sun
The palace lights flicker on
~
Illuminating passages with magical light
Revealing monkeys running riot
Through silent corridors at night
~
