Abstract Drama


The Winter Morning

The Winter Morning

1 min 190 1 min 190

‘Tis some month - perhaps December,

The grate still has some dying ember.

As the night paled into a paler dawn,

Struck with memories bygone!


The passing night had a whirlwind –

No, not the one that spins;

But the one that stays within!

I don’t recall where the moon had been.


As a blizzard begins to set in,

The sun’s nowhere to be seen.

Through all this bleak and desolation around –

I see the tea-seller smiling at me profound!


On the street, I greet the newspaper guy -

Wondering how he makes those papers fly;

To that old lady waiting in the 13th storey -

Just for this paper and some drink, maybe!


As I envisaged to light up a smoke,

Oh! I realized I don’t smoke.
