A view from the balcony

Each day, the view of sunrise from the balcony looks beautiful and afresh. The reddish orange color of the sky with the orange sun rising in the Eastern sky at times partially covered by the thin clouds, makes the world so beautiful. Though, there are multi-storeyed building all around, yet it adds to the beauty of nature. A morning stroll in the balcony, viewing the rising Sun not only energizes the mind but also elevates it spiritually. Even the physical body absorbs the essential Vitamin D from Sun which helps in healthy bone growth.

The air around is fresh and rich in oxygen and the chirping sounds of the little birds in the surroundings takes us to a different world which is calm and soothing. No honking of the vehicles, no smoke and dust. The atmosphere is crystal clear in the wee hours of the day and gives a fresh feeling to the mind, body and soul.
Rising sun
A view of sunrise from behind the clouds on another beautiful day - a view from the balcony.
Sunrise from behind the clouds
Equally enjoyable is the beauty of the rising moon on a full moon day.
Full moon rising from the Eastern sky
Though the apartment is located on the main road of the metro with much of hussle bussle and noise of vehicles yet, a view from the balcony makes you forget everything else and takes you to a different and calmer world.
Faintly visible rainbow
A faintly visible rainbow from your balcony on a rainy day, after the sun peeps out from the clouds and the atmosphere appears crystal clear. The poet within you awakes from his slumber sleep at the beauty of the nature and you can't stop yourself from penning down the beauty of nature in your own way of poetic verses.

Self-written poem:

With the musical chirps all around
And Sun rising in the Eastern sky
From behind the clouds and buildings
O! How beautiful Mother Nature looks
When viewed from the balcony

Away from tensions and worries of life
With no noises of the traffic and mobiles
And into a world of a calmer life
Spiritually elevating thyself for a while
With a view from the balcony in daylight.

These things might seem to be very common that occur in our day-to-day life. But, we have no time to enjoy the beauty of nature in this hectic life.
