Dry Wash

Rating: 5.0

In God's creation human beings are active,
They are cute, they don dress adaptive.
Different types of clothes they do put on,
These are polyester, voile, nylon and cotton.

Clothes save our bodies from dust and sun,
In winter we use warm clothes fancy in fun.
All these dresses get dirty and need washing,
Some are cleaned in soap or surf no fixing.

Furry dress and blankets need dry wash,

Just as clothes need washing when they become dirty with sweat and filth, our minds also need occasional cleansing with the grace of God. Meditation and prayer are like washing detergents. They wash away the dirt of sin and our mind becomes pure! A worthy write!

Beautiful comparison of dry wash in our life. Very true said in few lines Let's have dry wash to our mind and body, Which cleans violence vice grief and shoddy? We need to wash our sins and make our life as simple and beautiful as it should be. Meditation is the best way of keeping ourselves calm and cool. Beautiful presentation. Loved reading it.

Our belongings / our clothes are far more than we need. We take so much for granted. We certainly need to be rid of so much violence Thank you
