The sun hasn’t risen yet,
it’s a dark morning.
The same grass that looks green in the day
is now a dark grey.
Except the lights of buildings,
everything is wrapped in darkness,
If you keep waiting patiently,
even when your world is wrapped in darkness,
the sun would rise.
Even before it rises,
the sun spreads its light
signalling its arrival.
Suddenly you would see the greens mixed with the greys.
You would seethe clouds covering the blue sky.
If you wait patiently,
the colours and light will be back.
Patience — not so easy to have, and to keep
but sitting alone in darkness
and keeping aside all the to-do things
for an hour,
the thoughts go haywire, between past and future,
but soon the heart takes over
and the silence of the present
There are always things to-do,
but these dark mornings are
where quiet magical contemplation happens.
And there’s no escaping it,
if only you have patience.
