Ridhima Mehrotra


One Cold Winter Morning


One cold hazy early winter morning
I came out on a silent road
When darkness had engulfed the sky
When stars seemed to be playing
Hide and seek
When icy winds gushed through
The thick blanket of fog
Hitting me on my face
When everyone was under their quilt
Dreading the severe cold
I came out on that silent road

When the dawn had stretched itself longer
Waking up the sun from its slumber
And then its rays slowly creeping in
Making its way towards the earth
Wow! I got so enthralled by its beauty
That I started walking slowly
This transient phase
Of darkness to light
Is without a doubt
A mesmerizing sight….

But after my making thou write more true!
