Hopping with hope

Heart gets charmed by the beauty of a dawning day

Fresh like a virgin, as pure as snow

Seated on the wet garden bench

I set my heart on the lovely nature around

Watched the dazzling diamonds on the grass

Dews glowing at the touch of sunny rays


Birds in clusters wing off to far-off places

Yet some love birds still lazy to leave

Hidden behind the thick green leaves

Cuddling each other with feather so soft

I stretched on the grassy bed, closing my eyes

The heat inside healed by the chillness around


Nature’s symphony penetrated my soul

Tune so tender, rendered with perfection

Birds need not any maestros to lead

Or flowing water never loses its rhythm

The soothing breeze swept my nerves

My strenuous body felt so relaxed


The maiden nature hued with flowers

Offering a feast of varied fragrance

Time passed so swift, me locked in rapture

Someone was there to wake me to senses

Opened my eyes to see a cherubic beauty

A blooming child with a rose in her hand


Hugged her close and kissed her to thank

Once again a smiling child kindled me to sprout

Rose to my feet, to walk one more new day

Holding the child of hope, like a magic wand

Hope is like a tonic, make you strive hard

Hope is like a candle lighted in a dark room
