Peace & Harmony


Peace

You are the imperishable harmony
that reaps
unparalleled prosperity.
From the chalice of your love
I long painfully to sip
the invigorating wine
of fruitful returns.
You are
the softness of the radiant might
that melts the mist,
stirs the soul of clouds pushes down the rain showers
which kiss the dry lips of earth
and the wordless sonata
that moves the sharp white beams
of the moon.
In creation
you are a balance.
You are
the luxuriance of the aroma
that runs
in the veins of the enchanted blossoms.
You flower
a fragrant feast around,
caress
the flushed cheeks of the horizon
and liberate the birds that fly
to receive the ruler retiring
in a strange ceremony.
You are
the beat that echoes
in the breast of the arc.
You muse
in the melody of the falls.
You are nirvana
that helps in breaking the fetters
of the relentless brutalities
and manna for those who hunger
for a morsel of equality
on the barren mountain
where
the biting winds of intolerance
blow.
You are
the distinctive fount
that feeds the ever-growing pangs
of the sages
in every age.
Your abode,
ocean’s every drop.
You bind the earth and the sky
and rule to relieve
the rusting monotony.
