WHAT A DELIGHT

by Dr. Ashok T. Chakravarthy

Autumn leaves flutter with the early morning gales
Dew drops sparkle under the reflecting sunrays,
The golden horizon unfolds another dawn, delightful
Soft and cool, a dream unfurls in thoughts castle.

Blessed are the flowers which during nights blossom
Blessed are the buds which for a tomorrow dream,
Blessed are the clouds adorning the sky with delight
Blessed are we, whoever cherishes the adorable sight.

Amity and identity adorn the earth as ornamental peace
A place, where human love and concern should thrive;
Why can’t we exhibit our wit, patience and tolerance?
To sort our forced alienations and budding differences.

The sprouts of evil, — ‘injustice and non-cooperation’,
The hassles of progress, — ‘hatred, ego and rebellion’,
When these are conquered with love and self-realization,
The planet earth is bound to become an abode of heaven.

Instead of ruin, we foresee equivalence and prosperity
Instead of darkness, we shall see a worthwhile future;
The clouds of passion shall shower everlasting trust,
The winds of change shall blow every atom of mistrust.

On the ripples of freedom, floats and thoughts of peace
What a delight, if we pledge for such a worthy cause!
