Brightness to Darkness

 

 

Light is the incredible illusive

Manifestation of darkness;

The waves of light originate and

Merge into a sea of darkness;

 

Creation is the conspiracy of

Darkness along with brightness;

The soul lays its foundation in

Sheer darkness and seclusion;

Light builds up the body eventually;

 

Fleeting light thus aspires

To be absorbed into darkness;

In this struggle……

 

 Mind appears……

 

Illusive rainbow of colours;

Follows from prism like mind,

Distracting light to reach darkness;

 

On getting bored to ephemeral colours,

Light struggles for darkness strongly;

Either by coating the prism of mind,

Or by evading prism by creating the

Illusive mirror of renunciation;

 

This goes on birth after birth,

Until one day, in sheer exhaustion,

It stops all its motion outwards;

Shrinks and returns towards the source.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So Wonderful

 

 

Oh, Mother Earth…..

You are so wonderful!

I bow down to you.

 

We are on voyage along with

You, revolving indefatigably;

Where spectacular sunrise, welcomes

Us to the day, full of sunshine,

In order to receive life and energy

For our livelihood;

Till the amazing sunset bids adieu;

 

Oh, Mother Earth…..

You are so wonderful!

I bow down to you.

 

You further take us to the screen

Of dark sky for entertainment,

Where, the hide and seek game

By the Moon and twinkling

Little stars is in progress;

You then move us to serenity,

For relaxing in deep sleep;

While, you keep on rotating,

To present us another day,

From the womb of darkness;

 

Oh, Mother Earth…..

You are so wonderful!

I bow down to you.

 

You also rotate around the Sun,

In order to create different seasons,

Full of varying colours and beauties;

Yielding many fruits, crops, cloths, etc.

Resulting in celebration;

Where cheerful water droplets

Sing and dance in monsoon;

Light water vapours fly and

Reach to the sky in summer;

And, ecstatic ice showers

Magnificently in winter.

 

Oh, Mother Earth…..

You are so wonderful!

I bow down to you.

 

You have given me

This beautiful body;

Water, trees, air to survive

Oil and minerals

To lead a comfortable life;

 

Oh, Mother Earth…..

You are so wonderful!

I bow down to you.
