How terribly baneful life has become
With people screaming, struggling, slogging for survival,
Cursing themselves for being born
In this world of infinite encumbrances and anxiety!
Afflicted with the same malady
She needed some repose away from this constricted life,
So right to the top of a hillock she climbed.
Exhausted to the core
She sat down on the green with a deep sigh!
Glancing around, she perceived nothing but
A wide expanse of Nature’s glory,
A gentle sigh of relief and satisfaction
With the sweetest smile was let out!
Her whole face lit up with ecstasy
Amazed by the awesome beauty of
The trees dancing cheerfully
Showing off their lush green foliage,
A medley of colourful birds and-
Insects flitting about joyfully,
The monkeys, some with their little ones clinging to their moms
Put on a show of acrobatic tricks,
While many other animals were either grazing,
Relaxing or playfully nudging at each other!
It was more than a royal feast for the eyes!
It was the harbinger of endless spiritual exhilaration!
The tranquility along with the gentle, cool breeze
The pure fresh jubilant environment all around
Brought indescribable solace to her aching soul!
It is God’s benefaction to us, she thought,
This is what we humans need,
And this is what we should strive for wholeheartedly
It’ll give more joy than any materialistic gain will ever do
Nature is a massive warehouse of spiritualistic ecstasy
For us to explore and rejoice in!
