You are looking at a sunrise over the Chilika Lake,
It is dawn and everyone should wake.
For this is a soothing and lively experience.
Gazing at the rays of sunlight pierce through the veil of mist and illuminate the surroundings,
let me tell you such divine pleasures are a happy life’s essence.
This is heaven on earth for a bird,
one of the rare exalted places it visits during migrations.
All those winged creatures consider this to be among the most sacred of God’s creations,
where they find food, joy and refuge.
