Darkness evaporated into dim light,
Silence gave way to musical chirps,
I gazed at the changing hues of the eastern sky
In ethereal amazement.
The dazzling light seeped through the cloudy mazes,
Showered like rain : crimson, orange, golden.
I closed my eyes;
As the heavenly light poured in me,
And touched the rusty chords of space and time,
For once, it became real!
I sensed it through the dew drops, the soft leaves, cuckoo’s notes
The wet air, the cool breeze, the dirt at my feet :
Mother’s caring fingers and loving lips,
Taking away all my pains :For once, I felt, free.
