On A Lazy Day

Image Source: Google

A lazy day today has been
I am couched up in bed with a book
In my pajamas, feeling comfortable
Without fussing about how I look

Tired, exhausted from all the stress
Getting a break from the monotony of work
Having an entire day just for myself
Is giving my face a happy smirk

Life had handed me so many things
At times, more than what I could take
Yet somehow, I strongly got past it all
I did not even crack, let alone break

This too shall pass has always been the mantra
I now know hope is a beautiful thing
Life is a mixture of ups and down
Its not always about brightness and bling

As I look out of my bedroom window
Pitter patter raindrops falls on the pane
I see the trees dancing in the wind
Letting loose their green mane

The marigolds smile with joy
As the roses blush with pride
The leaves are enjoying this shower
Not shying away like a new bride

The sweet smell of the wet mud
Is something that soothes my sense
The circles formed by the tiny drops
Is the proof of God's presence

All my troubles seem so puny now
Nature is the biggest protector of all
We all are just a tiny speck here
Struggling between a rise and a fall

Its almost dark, with all the clouds
Like the sun has gone away for a drive
Thanks to the beauty of mother nature
On a lazy day, I feel glad to be alive

    Thankfully my lazy days are also NOT lazy, there is always something going around and each day brings a new situation, courtsey where I work.. but I long for those lazy days .. I had a week of it when i came to india and did nothing ..zilch.. but it did not rain for the three weeks i was there .. although it did cloud up and all and me and friends went uphill .. right i am going on a tangent here :)
