Chasing Dawn

The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth 
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep!
-Rumi

Scattered white and grey clouds, light drizzle, perfect weather for a dawn walk. The quietness, the peace, that is what inspired me to take a walk on this cloudy-rainy weather. Not even a single chirp of a bird or the song sung by rooster. Previous night was hell of a show as I followed the clues of destruction left behind by the last night hurricanes. Sweet destruction, more appropriate to say, as the ground is showing a clear reflection of distracted sky. Everywhere I look, it’s a sight of Heaven. The moon is in its last phase, few stars are visible, soaking every moment they could before they hide behind the glory of sun. I can forecast the weather; it’s going to be Awesome day.

Empty basketball and volleyball courts, empty cricket grounds. Empty swings being swung by the chilly breeze. The grass is damp, oh the feelings it gives when you walk on it barefooted. Flowers are ripe and blooming with sweet love, spreading everywhere. Water drop by drop, tear by tear, dripping of the leaves. Everything looks fresh as its been born overnight. The crunchy sound it creates when you walk on the fallen leaves. Oh the voice of each rustle of a leave, they are fulfilling their purpose even after they are broken down. They are keeping me at peace.

The sun is rising ever so slowly enjoying every bit of what moon left. The birds are ever so excited. My soul is screaming for a single touch of golden glimpse on my skin. Swan taking bath in crystal clear water. I love when the dogs fly and the cats bark, see my world is upside down. You might call me crazy but believe me I’m not crazy I’m just out of my mind. Some people never go out of their minds. What truly horrible lives they must lead.

At last, the glory rises with its golden wings covering the whole sky. The sunshine on my face is warm enough to make my heart sing and my soul dance. My whole body is directed towards the sun, soaking every single breath of sun. my body is shivering with the warmth touch of sun. My one eye sees while the other feels every moment. Most people don’t understand that every single day is a miracle, every single second is a blessing. Beauty is indeed in the eyes of the beholder.

“Go tell the majestic sun
to preserve its precious rays,
We’ll teach the core of our own beings
 to glow with its light”
