620. Morning lullaby


Before the Sun rise
The touch of its rays
Sky's shower in various colors
Making birds flutter and tweeter
Owls and snakes retire hidden
Darkness fades and goes away
Light comes dancing all the way
The unveiled globe is an alarm
And I wake up from bed warm

Oh! Mother Maya
What a lullaby You sing!
No one knows its meaning.
Do I wake up blinking? !
I know You make me
Fast asleep keeping my eyes open!
Ego wakes up to carry me on,
Fasten by senses five hosted fine
In Your mysterious dance and song
It is, after all another deep sleep.
But what is the purpose behind?
Why do You put me asleep?
Failing to know, I maintain my pace
Wearing a smile on my face
As a sheep among sheep
While people of world sink
In Your spell bound magic!

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
