AFTERMATH OF A STORM

 

After the shedding of tears from heaven,

appears the clear blue sky with silver linings.

 

Houses whose foundations are strong were cleansed,

trees whose roots are deep were watered.

 

How wonderful is the dawning light shining, brighter and brighter ,

till the full orb of the day.

 

How beautiful in the budding plant growing in freshness, boldness,

till it becomes a full grown tree.

 

How fragrant is the blossoming flower spreading its aroma and beauty,

till its sweetness fills the air.

 

Only after a storm can one appreciates the splendor of a brand new day,

with faith, hope in one’s heart.

 

IX

THE EARTH AND MAN

 

When the planet earth moves in tune with the music of the universe

And patiently obeys its laws, there is harmony and peace.

 

But, if for a moment the earth from its axis tilts

There is catastrophe and confusion.

 

When the lovers in silence dance with the rhythm of the heart

And in ecstasy love life, there is mutuality and completion.

 

But, if a lover departs from the bonds of love,

There is misery and sorrow.
