“The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven—
All's right with the world!”
Daily in the morning, after my basic chores in kitchen, I take a break in between to come out on to my porch to look at the beautiful vista that frames in front of my home. The nippy weather and the gold shades of the rising sun from behind the historic Gunrock enhances the appealing beauty. I enjoy the beautiful morning fully well after I pack off my son to school at 7. It is a treat to watch the graceful beauty of the creator. Some times, i get an urge to drink my tea and listen to my favorite songs on MP3 player but such pleasures are only for weekends.
As an early riser , I identify with Browning's words. There is something magical about the early hours of mornings, when there is less of artificial sounds and the nature's symphony is at it best. Nothing seems to speed, not even time and the whole ambience sort of fills you with a sense of calm setting your mood for the day. The beautiful rising sun and the nature's palette on the lovely sprawling canvas of sky, the starlings, the doves, the lovely cranes that fly to the nearby lake and all that beautiful blossoms on the road side trees with their subtle blossoming fragrance energizes you and perks up your mood with positivity to take charge of the day.
After the porch time, I move into my balcony to look at my tiny little farm throwing up life. the tiny green leaf popping out of a saunf seed, the tomato seedling that emerges out of the compost which shows that life can find a way, the methi microgreens looking like a lush green bed, the radish popping out from the brown earth like a white porcelain, the potato plant inching up and slanting in search of sunlight, so many such beautiful sights to catch up in the morning. All these lovely sights and more turn my morning into a Gold morning and last but not the least the other perk of early morning that sets the mood for the day in the spiritual me is ...
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love... then make that day count !”
