Revelling, savouring the smiling crack of dawn,
The dawn of life and creation,
In the vegetative world with its mysteries, increasing the fascination.
The silhouettes of trees start revealing their verdant beauty,
Ready to conquer the first morning air as darkness dissipates steadily,
To display mesmerising hues of red and pink in the eastern horizon.
As an enticement to join the celebration,
Soon increasing with the myriads of hues, the fascination,
And redeemed by this phenomenon, nature dances in exhilaration.
In awe stands the poet, full of admiration of this silent beauty.
Soon the sun peeps out of the skyline gradually,
And the magical beauty captivates him,
Heart and soul, and as the thrill sweeps over him,
He thinks of glorifying in his aubades,
This diurnal revolution of the earth in different shades.
No less attracted is the artist who starts visualising
Of presenting this awesome divine moment in his painting.
Will he be able to portray even a fraction of this phenomenal beauty?
Will he, the mortal, achieve in depicting this magnificent scenery?
Soon the birds start twittering melodiously,
Every blade of grass seems to rejoice.
The leaves awake to the sunlight to power photosynthesis,
All the flowers send out fragrant scents, full of enthusiasm,
The flower buds of sunflowers start exhibiting their heliotropism.
In the auspicious hour and the serenity around,
Awakes in the human world, the desire for divine connection,
To feel the Lord’s omnipresence and His intervention,
With the benediction of love, hope and faith as assurance,
To fill the new day with profound serenity and peace.
