& A Soul Stirring Morning - Poem by Mamta Agarwal

Gingerly stepping out nicely wrapped, inhaled
Shivering watched the hot vapours as I exhaled,
Swallowed by the icy breeze that tingled my face,
Carrying with it the invigorating heady fragrance,

Of dainty whitish pink cherry blossoms
My gaze rests on daffodils and tulips—awesome:
One pale yellow and the other inviting attention,
With its vibrant colours, coming out of hibernation.

The Dal Lake is enveloped in fog and solitude.
Villagers, in Pherens are picking logs with fortitude.
The Sun is smiling taking in the whole scene,
Birds are having a sunbath perched atop the trees.

Hill tops some dark and some lit up with sunshine
Silent witness to the morning coming out alive.
It’s kind of slushy, as my feet sink in the melting snow
I raise a toast to spring, and watch winter make a graceful bow.

    This is a really beautiful poem, I was there with you drinking in the scene. I love the early mornings, sun rising evaporating those struggling streaky pink and greywhite clouds. That time before the world wakes up, its silence is beautiful. Thank you (Report)Reply

    this the first poem I'm reading this morning, with my coffee and my Helen-made fruit cake and it all goes so well with this gorgeous morning made all the more glorious by your enchanting, soft, dreamy poem that soaks my heart with great joy and makes me shout aloud that this world is indeed good. Give us more flowers, Mamta that we may inhale beauty and freshness and joy. (Report)Reply
