It’s day-break now!
With much reluctance do I get up;
perch I near the window,
With a cup of steaming coffee,
for the usual visual treat!
Shrug off laziness and exchange greetings
all the leaves of the tree,
close to the compound wall,
To the rustles of the leaves the birds instantly respond
By cawing up the still-dozing humanity!
What are they all up to, wonder I!
Daily chores engage me;
Office beckons my sleeping husband;
Does their mission end in waking us up
Or does mankind miss the awakening aspect?!
