A New Dawn

With every dawn

I wake up to,

And hear the first chirps

Of an early bird,

I see the horizon

Waking up,

To a new life,

Freshness,

Limitless

potentialities,

Tickling joys,

And immeasurable

abundance.

At every sunset,

I find

Sleep lingered into

All that the day brought,

And tapping none of

It’s availabilities,

Remaining parched,

Continued hope

Of another dawn

To see,

Waiting for life

to express itself

I go to sleep,

In a continued dream.

Silence

The clock ticks

Reminding of the movement

Set in motion

Under whose plan or will?

The rising Sun

Seen day after day

Eternal as though

A stark witness

To the movements herein

The rising waves,

Who impels them?

For whom do they rise and fall

Tirelessly

Sometimes graceful,

Other times not!

The hills, the lakes, the snow,

The meadows, the forests

Oh! So much … All in motion

How can life be finite?

When every aspect of it is infinite!

And Now, I hear the silence!

Between the two tick ….. tick!

Ah! The joy of Silence!
