The World Wouldn't Be The Same

Dawn! The most cherished part of my day! Usually I glimpse through the window from my bed, And wish for a few more hours of sleep! Some days, when I don't have to, I get up And perch on the Muskoka lounger in my backyard, Enjoying every second, every minute of that surreal experience! I am a part of this wide, magical Earth, Part of that celebratory moment! The World wouldn't be the same without me, And without You! Azure unfathomable sky, with a mix of gorgeous red from the East, Sometimes it's just a dot, Like a red dot on the forehead of an enchanting woman from the Orient, Then it grows bigger and bigger, enveloping the horizon, A few white clouds floating, carefree, like my favourite Kash flowers, Our great creator has announced his arrival, but hasn't arrived yet. Some days, it's still unilluminated and unusually mysterious, Awed, I gaze at the sky from my bed, Stars still blinking, Dark sky studded with millions of them, Each one has a poignant story to tell, Very strangely A Full Moon, round and silvery, Refuses to disappear, Although her contender is about to rise. I am mesmerized!
