The grayish sky with an ember dot
Like an evening bride blushing in calm
The cool breeze sings a hymn
Serenading the hearts of mighty palms

As the lazy waves ebb on the shore
A thought surrounds my eased out mind
A wish combines with a question
Why to follow this daily grind?

The pursuit of this world is a hazy mirage
Wouldn’t it be great……

If I too could sing like the clinking raindrops
All to my hearts delight
If I too could gaze at the distant moon
Through the endless sable night
If I too could count the million stars
And try to touch their milky light
If I too could find a face in a blowing cloud
And trace behind its billowy flight…..
