Life is a Color Palette

a poem by Anu Srinivas

Life is a Color Palette
I feel fortunate to be a part of this planet

The morning sky tempts me
Venus calling, “No one’s brighter than me”

From dark to light, the rising sun
Touching millions, yet he’s only one

The birds chirp, Dogs howl
As we wake, sleeps the owl

The days begins, I end my walk
Time for my chores, its already 6’0 clock

Kitchen, that’s my own space
I enjoy working here, at my own pace

I season to the tune of music
It’s intoxicating, when it’s a sentimental pick

I enjoy cooking, it does not burden me
Along with nature, music, a good sip of cardamom tea

Cannot imagine a world without music
I am sure, it makes me feel sick

The afternoon sun, the scorching heat
Makes it difficult to manage a pleat

I am eager to welcome the setting sun
It’s late evening, out to the balcony I run

What I see! A feast to the eyes
Believe me, it’s no lies

Life is a Color Palette
I feel fortunate to be a part of this planet
