Spirituality 2 - This Too Will Pass - Poem by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon

The sun rises with a mild hue and a soft glow,
Glimmering and playing the hide and seek,
But nay, this game is just for a while,
For the sun shines brighter now
Touching with warmth the cold lives.
But this healing light does not last long,
The ultra violet rays begin to burn and scorch
The very existence, so precious!

But this burning heat too passes,
The trees lift their heads with courage,
The evening glory smiles in serenity,
And gracefully exits into the dark night.
So the days pass and the night follows,
With summer dreams and winter droughts,
The autumn spelling ripe yellow leaves,
Shedding and merging with the brown earth!

But then again, a retreat into the snow,
The white sheet of nature, so cold -
That chills, like an iced candy!
But the ice and the snow melt too,
Into a warm spring of beauty,
That brings back the glittering smile.
So, there's a bright day after a dark night.
A tranquil peace after the storm's turmoil!

So, life is a sea of changes!
What's in the morning is not
What's in the evening!
Just when one begins to contemplate on
Life's swift movements,
Alas! One has run out of time!
This incredible principle of life,
Startling, yet truthful that this too will pass!

    Truly, life is a sea of changes, what is in the morning is not in the evening
    So, why be sad on what we don't have as we can get it later.
    A good write

    Deep! The secrete of their happiness is accepting the fact that nothing is permanent...we all can be happy if we follow their path (Report) Reply
