The early morning call
be it to the temple
not for me in all
for my cousin’s invite.
Never had risen so early recent
not even during examinations
nice of it to see the morn decent
turned out to be a fascination.
The darkness still dense
the rays of sun not visible
free from pollution intense
away from the high decibel.
A drive through the town
the houses locked and gates fastened
could go fast without a frown
unnecessary to run in a hasten.
The temple was also free
so quick for the morning devotees
could pray with the mind in glee
rewarding would it turn to be?
