A Morning’s Sweet Bliss

(Fond memories of the beauty of early mornings back home in India)

A morning's sweet bliss



The first streak of sunlight shyly arrives

on the stage donned in golden attire,

and with dainty steps resembling a conservative bride

walks into obliging realms of the night,

as the birds chirp gaily in their gifted tongues

showering praises on the morning light.


As the souvenirs given by unseen well wishers

pearly dew drops glitter on green leaves,

and the newly bloomed buds blush at the thought of

being kissed first time by the breeze,

while the tender shoots sprouted from fertile soil

look forward to receive day’s blessings.


A rooster often arrives as the very first guest

to loudly chastise a sleepy world,

while a kohl eyed cuckoo lends a patient ear

to the deafening concert of some crows,

as a stray cat wanders in totally uninvited 

alarming this assembly of feathery friends.


A cloud of mist encircles as a diaphanous aura,

as if it is bygone night’s trailing silk veil,

while the clear blue skies with cushions of white clouds

mirror the day’s endless possibilities,

as countless syllables and rhymes align by themselves

drafting nature’s sweet poetry.


The cool and soothing early mornings winds

dry up yesterday’s agonies and tears,

and urges us to discard the baggage of regrets

to view everything in a  fresh perspective,

as the sun smiles broadly from his throne in the horizons

after graciously heralding new beginnings.
