A New Morning

Anoucheka welcomes the dawn, the beginning of a new morning, evocatively in this verse, for Different Truths.

A fresh morning
With a new born sun
With droplets of dew on flowers and leaves
With birds chirping, fresh from a night of peace
With fairies bidding Earth goodbye, after having spent a night dancing
With the moon yawning, ready for his rest
With the world, awake and ready
Ready to tackle a new day
Ready to welcome new possibilities
Ready to hope for new opportunities
Ready to let go of clinging bothers

In between half opened eyes
I looked at this glorious scenery
And I said to myself
Who would not love this place?
Even if it’s laden with mysteries
Even if its existence seems to be void
Who would not love this place?

Are we not blessed to be alive?
Pray, should we not use each day to its best
Come, I shall not recite voodoo mantras to be able to get out of bed
Rather, I shall jump out
And make the most of this day
Someday, somehow, my existence shall cease
I know not where I shall be then
But I do know that I shall not get to enjoy
The essence of
Such a beautifully new morning again!
