“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” ― Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds
I love to watch the first glimpse of dawn as it comes bringing in the pure smell of nature and freshness. The air seems to be cool and serene. The world around looks beautiful. Nature and all of the creation seem to be rejoicing, the birds chirping and singing gloriously. The squirrels chattering. The flowers move in quick and lively in the gentle breeze and sending their fragrance as far as they can reach and making the scene complete. The rays of the sun fill you with goodness. It is the feeling of warmth in the bones and strength to the soul to watch the first glimpse of half-light.
The first lights of half-light come through the sky. A golden trace or silver grey Now, a fiery orange bright Yellow rays are seeping through Liquid gold or love’s own hue. Such colors in my palette, I can never find.
Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. ~ Rabindranath Tagore
Say not in grief that she is no more but say in thankfulness that she was A death is not the extinguishing of a light, But the putting out of the lamp Because the dawn has come. ~ Rabindranath Tagore

Like as the waves make towards the pebbl’d shore, so do our minutes, hasten to their end.
~ William Shakespeare
Every minute is precious. You cannot get it back. By wasting it, one is not harming others but oneself. The wise and talented use it fruitfully.
“The Value of Time”
Time is the most valuable thing on earth: time to think, time to act, time to extend our fraternal relations, time to become better men, time to become better women, time to become better and more independent citizens.
~ Samuel Gompers.
So, using your Time fruitfully is the key to success.

Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all
~ Emily Dickinson
Pink flamingoes gather for their daily meet
See how the sacred old flamingoes come,
Painting with shadow all the marble steps:
Aged and wise, they seek their wonted perches
Within the temple, devious walking, made
To wander by their melancholy minds.
~ William Butler Yeats
