The morning alarm abuzz,
Tired eyelids apart,
Dishevelled linens aside,
Smiles another morning saying “Arise!”
Nudges and trudges afar,
The door opens ajar,
The toothpaste meets the bristles,
Off shooting the cringes and sniffles!
The tepid water from the faucet,
Songs of the birds beset,
Rustling leaves and the flowing breeze,
All contributing to the yearning for Time to freeze.
The frivolous splashes across the reflector,
Disturbing the ants across the diameter,
A whiff of the hand over the tousled hair,
Good morning is what you say with care!
A bath and a breakfast later,
Confined within the walls that matter,
Papers and chemicals in the mind preoccupy,
Experiments galore amidst acids and alkali.
The shining star lazily shifts atop,
The cue for lunch and off we gallop
But; sooner the white and blue contours are back,
For good times are always on the check!
Back at the bench or before the screen,
Mind everywhere except where it should have been
Dreams and sleep take turns in the mind
The conscience screaming: “What is it to find?”
With attempts and efforts you come back to it,
Only to realize that bad habits seldom let you sit,
Rejuvenation and playfulness in the mind,
Caffeine and glucose is what you seek to find.
All this and now you come back again,
Only to repeat the charade over and again,
Leave for the bed with the promise in heart,
That tomorrow would be different
No matter what is there in the cart!
