Veils of the morning

cover the surroundings

in shy grandeur.


A supreme sight to behold

and seize the silence

which hence shall never be.


A perfect time to listen

to nature’s opera

when beating hearts lie still.


A joy to hear

the crickets compete tunelessly

with the buzzing bees.


A lazy walk reveals

the lake water lapping

against the empty shore.


O! The mysteries of nature,

so many to decode before

the morning lifts her veils up.
