Sunrise

Written by: Hitendra Mehta

sunrise
not just a scenic beauty
of fireball nudging up 
or orange sea splashing at horizon

sunrise
is mortals clock
buzzing alarm offering fresh opportunity 
to rise and stop not till the goal is achieved

sunrise
key to habitable atmosphere 
lifeline for humans, flora and fauna 
no wonder few worship as visible GOD

sunrise
an inspiration 
for dedicated discipline
to religiously discharge duty relentlessly

sunrise
a message 
if you want to rise and shine like sun 
burn like sun
