Romancing with the Sun


 I had been to a Nature retreat recently. Here are my musings when I would go for an early morning walk everyday during my stay there.


I wake up to take a walk early in the morning,
To see the Sun kiss the Earth his first greeting;

He crawls up the horizon so daintily,
Careful not to jerk up his sleeping beauty;

The Earth unfurls herself to his smooth touch,
And reveals her untainted splendour, without ado much;

As he throws his radiant smile without any hint of refrain,
She responds by glistening the spread on her hilly terrain;

The live foliage stuck by light, starts dancing,
To the tune of the of the mild breeze wafting;

The butterflies start fluttering around,
As if dawned by a freedom new found;

The birds chirp ten to one in cheery tones,
As they rouse up from their slumber moans;

The rooster loves the crackle of his voice,
And thinks its his privilege to make some noise;

The flowers spread their blooms in a capricious blend,
It’s the beholder’s joy to watch them and let the eyes fend;

The pristine oxy-rich air is so soothing to the lung,
As I take a deep breath, by the beauty my heart is stung;

The Sun is the source of all her strength and energy,
And she enchants him by performing in total synergy;

The Sun and the Earth tease each other throughout the day,
And their first greeting is a very romantic one I would say!!
