I Stand At The Foot Of The Hills,
Sapped, Drenched, Hungry, Full Of Despair, 
Gazing Dis-spiritedly At The Summit,
And The Vast Rocky Expanse Leading Up To It.

But Soon As The Orange Sun Emerges,
From Behind The Imposing Peaks Of Green,
And Begins To Bathe The Azure Sky,
In Hues of Orange, Purple and Gold.
And As The Sun's Shiny Gilded Rays,
Begin To Seep In Through Slits And Crevices,
Created By The Lazy Lifting,
Of The Woollen Blanket From The Luscious Lofty Hills.

I Wait For 'God's Fingers'
To Gently Cast An Even Sheet Over Me,
And I Wait For The Warmth Of Those Heavenly Rays,
To Dry Out, Renew And Rekindle My Sappy Spirit.

Crepuscular Rays: Rays of sunlight that appear to radiate from the point in the sky where the sun is located, especially those that stream through gaps in clouds or between other objects.

I would also like to take this opportunity to share something with you. I have nominated my blog for IndiBlogger's Indian Blogger Awards 2017. I have nominated my blog for 5 award categories, namely Humour, Memoirs, Short Stories, Poetry and Self Improvement. Although the determination of award winners of blogs will largely depend on evaluation by an esteemed jury, about 20% of the scoring will be based on testimonials sent by readers/fans. So if you've ever liked what you've read from my blog, now's the time to show it some love by clicking the link and leaving a testimonial/comment.

You will be able to leave your comment while being logged into FB. Your comments are important to help me pull off a win, or maybe come close. Most importantly, it would let me know where I stand.
