a scruffy morning

it has just stopped raining, the raindrops are still rolling off ledges and leaves. plonk! plonk! plonk! the skies have still not cleared and the teal marble floor is littered with bruised pink petals and off coloured leaves. tut tut tut tut. it rained all night. the tiara of raindrops crowned the leaves without discrimnation making queens out of each one of them, if only for fleeting moments. the tousled morning with her sleep heavy face still needs to be woken up. let her s-t-r-e-t-c-h a lill more.

No matter where you are in the world, Fall has a similar feel to it. I could relate to this well.

You really gave the morning a life of its own. And I thought your description was absolutely lovely, despite the fact that I am hardly a morning person!

gulnaz said...

nicole- hey that's really sweet of you! thank you sweetie!! :)

and btw i'm not a morning person either but i like the calm of early early mornings.

"the tiara of raindrops crowned the leaves without discrimnation making queens out of each one of them, if only for fleeting moments." Wow...this poem has made itself a queen :-)

I never thought a raindrop could be described so beautifully. Where I live it rains about half the year. I guess there are a lot of queens after the rainfall :-)
