Prayer for Peace

“God for His service needeth not proud work of human skill;

They please Him best who labour most in peace to do His will.” (Wordsworth, “The Poet’s Dream”)

A Tribute to the Elephant

DSCN4087

Majestic art thou, O Mighty One!

Towering above all ……man , animal and bird

Fearless and sure-footed

Yet thy eyes are big pools of innocence and divinity!

Albeit thy build be huge, thou art yet herbivorous!

Harming others is not thy nature

For only in fear and self-defence dost thou strike!

Or else “live and let live” is thy policy!

Thy gait has such unparalelled grandeur

That no catwalk can ever outdo!

When thou  trumpets, it echoes even in  the netherworld

And so does it reverberate in the open skies!

A king amongst kings art Thou, O Mighty Elephant!

A blessing to this planet

I pray to the Lord to give me that strength and courage

That thou has been gifted with!

May Thou be blessed with a carefree life

Free from fear of exploitation

Free from fear of extinction

Free from fear of being driven out of your habitat!

Live well! Live in freedom! Live in peace!

Live in  celebration of life

May He protect Thee as a mother dost her child!

Amen! Amen! Amen!

LOVE STORY

DSCN3417

Hey! Look! What a lovely sight up above!

The sky beckons to your soul with its multiple hues

Golden, orange, blue and white and silver-grey

He seems eager to meet the Earth on the horizon!

He will merge into Her in all His Glory

And find solace in Her dark tresses

To rise again in His Glorious Form

Spread Light and Joy as he gallops along in his Silver Chariot!

It’s Sunset Glory! It’s the Greatest Love Story

The love of God for all His Creation

Earth and Sky, Moon and the Stars

Man and Beast, Bird and Fish,Trees and Flowers!

What is there on this planet not embraced in His Loving Fold

The Sun rises in glory and sets in glory

To repeat the story day-to-day, year to year, yugas to yugas

And so gives us a message!

Yes! It’s a message to man

That man passes through different phases in life

All that he sorrows over are never for ever

For they disappear in their own time as darkness or night does!

And then knowledge dawns, awareness dawns, joy dawns in life

As the day dawns and brings light to the world

Beginning of Love, Peace and Bliss…End of despair, sorrow and futile worry

It’s Sunset Glory! The Lord’s Love Story!
