Lofty Grace

 May be an image of mountain, tree and nature

 

Shorn of their foliage
deforested and defaced
they tranquilly withstand
assault after violent assault —
natural and man-inflicted 

The flood of progress
has altered their facade
tea bushes have supplanted
native vegetation and flora
the fauna too has thinned out 

Towering majestically,
these sage-like hills
articulate wordlessly
the wisdom of centuries
garnered through the ravages of time 

Full of mercy, these sprawling giants
exude inner beauty
accept with equanimity and dignity
the daily alien tumult of life
that grinds across their tremulous bosoms 

Can you hear their tacit poetry
feel their healing aura
as it infiltrates the spirit?
Freeze all inner dialogue
Shh! Listen. Be still and listen deeply 

You will hear the peace entering you.
