         Getting rid of boredom

         left the noisy world of city

         fled to the village, may be fatuity

         to beguile and embrace freedom

         destiny called him soon to an unknown kingdom

         freeing him from all sorts of boredom.

    Medhini,
    I was not sure whether the first line was the title or part of the post. That threw me at first.
    Anyway many reads and some googling later ….
    an excellent piece. Brevity and concise language.
    Good structure and rhyming without weighing on the flow of language and thought.
    A sparse description of an episode in a life, touching on the complexity / confusion of a mind.
    Fatuity / naivety of trying to evade the present / future in a return to the past – literal / physical / emotional / imagined. Plans completed in their abrupt cancellation.

    A very elegant poem on an incident evoking heartfelt sad feelings & emotions.
    Temporary freedom in life oscillates between busyness & boredom
    Till the time arrives for our real freedom dictated by the divine administration.
    Kudos for this short uniquely impacting poem
