Morning

written by: Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH

 

Closed buds we were,  cocooned,
wading through the silence of the night
Our sorrows lay frozen
lulled by prayers soothing
we wake up energised
to find your radiance on high
the lone bird flutters high,
a soul in total abandon…
we open up our splendour
and colours myriad
for the world, to cheer the moment
of a dawn at doorstep
basking in thy heavenly grace…
