Early Sunlight

(click for enlarge)
Through the mountain pass
the sunlight falls,
speaking its own language
of light and warmth.

Between the canopies of trees
the sunlight unveils,
a pretty old iron bridge
that gives way to creek beneath.  

Amid the mountains n valleys
the emerging daylight,
gives afresh daub of yellowish green
to cold wrapped Blue Mountains.

Traveling quite through night
the morning sunlight,
restrained almost getting exhaust
regenerated the mind n body get console. 


The pictures shot while climbing the Blue Mountains (Nilgiris) at early morning hours... during my vacation to Ooty.

I love this Jeevan!! How sunlight will not be stopped, it always penetrates the trees into the earth below. "the sunlight falls,
speaking its own language" - nice way of putting it. Once again, an amazing poem my friend!

Nice poem but I don't know why you put up a sunlight photo from Ooty when every photo you might have taken in Chennai will be full of sunlight!! :)
