Poem by Pushmaotee Subrun
Rising from Numbness of Mind
A strong urge to sleep,
To rest my tired eyes.
Sadness overtakes me,
Seems to numb my mind,
And slumber my spirit,
And yet there is so much to be thankful for.
The roses are blossoming ravishingly,
The birds are chirping merrily,
My auditory sense is cheered by the birds’ twittering,
My eyesight is soothed by the brilliant flowers,
The mountains, the green dales and valleys,
The vast expanse of blue sky,
And my spirit awakens to bountiful Nature.
My unreasoning dull lethargic self,
Wake up, listen, admire, breathe,
Breathe the air of serenity,
Relax in the universal spherical music.
And be thankful to be surrounded,
By so much beauty, so many blessings!
