Before 10am

5 am wake up call

(I wish I could put that darn bird on snooze)

look out of the window

no sign of the slumbering winter sun

steal some extra moments in the blanket

alarm clock( groan)

(switch off ), slide out of warmth

quick shower

soft music, prayer of gratitude

time to savor the splendor

of  yet another glorious day(before it ends)

inhale the radiant prana of life

exhale the impurities

breath, deep and easy

wrapped in silence

still the inner

A ritual of solitude

a pit stop for soul

first light of the sun

filter through the dewy trees

stretch like a cat

laptop blinks

new emails, updates overnight

greet the world , stop the urge to chat

switch off

Alarm shrieks from boys-zone

a reality check

door bell rings, mobiles ring,

rush hour begins

A quick coffee, breakfast for boys

hurried goodbyes

all three men out by 9

peace returns

( a brief period of solace

warmed by fresh hot coffee

and a quick peek into virtual world)

phone rings and rings and rings

(let it )
