Valsa George


A Misty Dawn


Against the hazy sky
Mountains, seen grotesque
Frightening monsters, poking out
Here, there and all around
In the glinting darkness
The ravine, like a mythical snake
Gapes its mouth
Mist hovers,
The leaves are tear stained
By the Night's frozen grief.
In stealthy steps,
With the jingle of anklets,
The wind comes to shake off the drops
And down they drip one by one
As the grass below shiver
At the sudden shock.
The leaves, rid of the load, flutter-
Faint stir of life!

From a distant habitation
The rooster, in sharp notes
Sounds the siren.
The East bleeds,
As shafts of gold cuts through her breast.
Darkness recedes,
Birds begin to chirp.

Slowly,
Slowly, parting curtains
The day emerges
Like a lazy boy
Disinclined to be roused from sleep

    i like it.my favorite moment of a day is dawn.when the birds chatter as if they are praying the God.even the trees when the dews drip from them.so the message at the end really is awakening.
    a masterpiece of art.
    Kudos~nb (Report) Reply

    wonderful description. I felt to read it in one go. imagery is suggestive and strong message delivered.

    The rooster, in sharp notes
    Sounds the siren.
    The East bleeds,

    and then the comparison.
    The day emerges
    Like a lazy boy

    Beautiful. (Report) Reply

    a lovable poem on our life, like a lazy boy
    we love to live here on this lovely land of God
    And down they drip one by one
    As the grass below shiver
    At the sudden shock.
    The leaves, rid of the load, flutter- (Report) Reply
