The Daily Prompt : Chaos

Reading in the newspapers
About violence
Here, there and everywhere.
And then about
The destruction of
Nature’s resources
For the never ending
Greed of man.

Chaos across the world.
But there must be
Something good everywhere,
Life goes on
With all its ups and downs.
There is always
The good,the bad and ugly.
In spite of everything,
It is good to believe
There is not enough
Darkness in the world
To extinguish the
Light of a small candle.

His Gitanjali which won the Nobel Prize in 1911 was translated to English by himself. I have read it many times and each time it is a different experience.… Continue reading OUR WEST BENGAL TRIP-(22)
