The aftertaste

The scent of dawn
A mile away
Time sniffs about
And finds its way
It rings from far
and calls to me.
I roll over
it sings with glee
its ugly song
in offset tones
Oh, that awful drone!

And past the endless chimes
Yawns, sniffles and sighs
I tried to find sleep
My attempts were futile
Dawn beckons,
with gentle rays
tender lips and
a warm embrace

I wake up knowing the battles that lie
And behold the first I march to
Gallant and full of pride
The sword I drew with bristles and foam
To get rid of the aftertaste.


  • hey ...
    u dont seem like a morning person huh. i love sunrise...its just so awesome ya. the best time to blend with nature...
    but,i agree, what follows i.e, the everyday grind sometimes gets into the nerves.

  • Nisha, I love the sunlight, I love the day "Dawn beckons with gentle rays......" This is more about this ugly taste that sticks around in your mouth when you wake up.
