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