On a Lazy Morning

On a lazy morning


Winter waiting on the threshold,

a slight chill

in the breeze 

touching the skin,

piercing a bit deeper,

but gently.

The sun espying one eyed 

from behind a thin layer of clouds, 

and the wide sky

canopying all eager, to cheer

with an impressive display

of designer clouds.

A sleepy Indian suburb,   

having lazed out long enough …

well into the morning, 

braces up to open its eyes,

and wake up

to another fresh day. 

The scene is certainly

so familiar …

ages old,

yet too charming and

mesmerizing to miss,

as ever!
