A deep silence shrouds the Morn with baited breath, while the dying night awaits
The day yet to come! A pregnant hush insinuated, before the din of the awakened
World, as a lusty new-born babe shouts its arrival! While the world continues in deep
Slumber, a tramp roots around in the garbage, looking puzzled and amazed knowing
Not what he has lost, perhaps he looks for fortunes lost, but the drink he had at night
Has muddled his waking thoughts as he rummages for lost fortunes and lost smiles!
Another young man sits below the lamp post, a mobile in his hands, while he looks
With puzzlement at the instrument belting out the sounds of a tractor engine
Starting, a noise disturbing the expectant quietness of the morning still asleep!
As if on a cue, the cattle begin lowing, louder and louder, shattering the quiet,
Like a glass shattered on the ground!The crows start cawing and croaking, ending
That magical moment when lost lovers finally meet and dreams lead to smiles!
But some have slept a waking sleep and the day to come bears no surprise gifts,
The tramp lost his winning ticket in the garbage in a night of drink, and the one
With the mobile has stored strange sounds in it. For them, the day holds nothing
But a routine grind of drudgery and boredom! As for me, I turn back to my home
To prepare for the day ahead. Some valuable lessons have I learned, of waking
Early to welcome the approaching day and savour magical moments as they pass!
