DESCENDING OF DAWN~by Anil Kumar Panda




Hopping of birds on roof-tops
Wavering fronds shedding dew drops
Beating of hooves in cow-sheds
Perching of egrets on buffaloes’ heads

Opening of petals welcoming the Sun
Whistling of breeze at the break of dawn
Mellifluous flow of the serpentine streams
Young girls waking up shedding dreams

Valleys and plains echoing cowherd’s song
Flowers releasing fragrance sweet and strong
Grove at a distance stands high like a curtain
Birds making somersaults over murky terrain

Gathering of women around village wells
Restless hooves accompany clanking of bells
The stoic presence of an undulating hill
The aged banyan sitting strong and still

The sounds of bells atop church’s tower
Swinging of butterflies on nodding bower
The nature has already set a grand stage
For the dawn to descend upon my village
