Treasure Island

Dr John Celes

(14-2-1957 / Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India)

Lent is:


A battle-time for folks;
Each soul seems like war-zone;
So, circumcise your hearts;
Renounce your sinful crafts.

Think of the good God did;
Repent for sins of past;
Remember: ‘Be perfect,
Like how the Lord, God is.’

Read holy works and books;
Reflect on life’s true worth;
Regain soul’s state of grace;
Retrace your steps to God.

Lent is to spend time lent
In life to search for God;
Lent is a chance to mend
Your ways, avoiding rod.

Lent is the time to lose
Your extra-calories;
Avoid exotic foods;
Recover mind’s lost peace!

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
