A Simple Winter Morning

Nazmun loves writing and watching movie and reading books. Now she wants to take a break and write for Hubpages.

Winter mornings are much better. However, no one wants to leave the house because it is very cold outside. Most people wake up at 8 o'clock in the morning in my country. They get plenty of sleep in winter. People in my country become lazy which is somehow funny. For which he does not want to get out of bed easily. But if you can overcome laziness in winter and go out and see nature, then I am sure you can see a little bit of heaven.

I wake up early every day and I have a habit of walking outside every day. Each day I experience new things and witness nature in a beautiful way. today I will share about such a day.

There was a girl younger than me in the house next to mine. Her name was Maisha. There was not much difference in age between the two of us. Currently she has shifted to a different place. Winter, she and I used to plan when to get up in the morning, when to go for a walk and where to go for a walk?


I would think about all this.

Then when winter came I would wake up very early in the morning. Before dawn, there's some more time left when the sun rises. Me, Maisha and Maisha's younger sister would go for a walk together. We used to take a lot of pictures but those pictures are no more. Pictures have been deleted since my previous device was damaged. We have small hills here. And even though it is an old factory, the place is very beautiful. I used to go out wearing sheets and spectacles to find the beauty of nature. There were people on the streets then. Diabetics used to walk on the streets. Street dogs slept comfortably under trees, on stairs, or on the street. Seeing their sleep, it seemed that they were sleeping very comfortably. They cannot be bothered at this time. Cows and goats would also come out. The shepherd would take them to the field to let them eat grass. The birds chirped. The dove would sing and sing. The fragrance of flowers spread all around. The presence of Jasmine could be understood especially in the fragrance of it.

The sun shone diagonally. In that light, everything seemed like a fairy tale. Occasionally there would be mountains in front of us. We used to have fun climbing mountains. Dew wet grass. The dew on the grass looked like pearls on the land. It shone like pearls in the sunlight. My mother used to say, "Walk barefoot on the dew-drenched grass. It would be nice."


My niece loves to walk in the morning too. It was a little bit cold outside. The sun rises  and the place was photogenic.

I really liked it and I still love to walk barefoot on the dew-drenched grass. Always take off your shoes and walk on the grass, even for a while. I didn't take care of my feet. So the ankle fractures. Pain is also found. Once the blood came out. In Bangladesh, date juice is preserved from date palms. This juice is great to eat. Like sticking to the mouth after eating once. I don't know if it is done in any other country.

Palm trees used to come in front while walking. The earthen jar was tied to the trunk of the tree with a rope. The juice will be stored in this earthen jar. There are mud houses or canister houses on the hill. Some houses are like huts. Smoke billows from the ovens of these houses. Basically in winter we make different types of cakes in Bangladesh. Each cake tastes different. Each cake has its own design. Every morning these different types of cakes are made in the village houses. The most popular are chital pitha and bhapa pitha. I personally like steamed cakes. This cake is specially made by making rounds with rice powder. Molasses is inside. Great to eat with hot date juice. When cold, the cakes harden. Again, steamed cake will not look good without the winter season. The cake festival has been going on in Bangladesh since ancient times. Housewives get up early in the morning and make cakes, so the smoke is rising from the oven. There is no snowfall in Bangladesh. But there's a lot of fog. Smoke and fog mix with each other to make the mind feel different.


During this time the prices of vegetables also go down. New potatoes come on the market. Fresh vegetables are available every day at lower prices. So the poor and the middle class can buy good vegetables for themselves. Every dish tastes delicious when cooked with fresh vegetables brought from the field. It is fun to eat small fish curry if it is cooked with lots of chili's. When you go out for a walk in the morning, you would notice people who carry vegetables on their shoulders from a distance on the way to the market. Fresh vegetables are just brought from the field. So it is nice to see dewy vegetables.


There is a river a little farther away. Whose name is Surma. Surma is a well known river in Bangladesh. The boat runs on the river all night and day. The river proves its worth in any season. The sun rises in the sky and all around turns red with a reddish glow. If any photographer wants, he can take many beautiful pictures of this place. Standing on the bank of the river, this wonderful view makes the mind restless.


Meanwhile, I came home shivering and shivering in the cold. After seeing nature, now I come home and make tea with cardamom and cinnamon. Drinking tea during winter will keep the body warm. So if you want to stay warm, it is better to drink hot tea.
