What Goes Around

“Our Teachers in Nature” was a very beautiful passage – really nicely articulated the interconnectedness of life. How important it is to live in harmony with nature, knowing, as Ganobaji wisely pointed out, how nature is not something separate from us as individuals – we all, after all, have our own ‘natures.’  On how I was reminded of karma through this passage, I have written a poem:

What Goes Around

Peeking through the trees of the forest in Neyyar Dam, Kerala – nature is such a wonderful teacher, indeed!

What goes around,

Comes around

and around

and a round.

Life moves thus

in circle motion.

Time flows,

sways,

twirls,

leaps

and turns.

Time is Shiva: the cosmic dancer.

Time waits for no one.

As Shiva dances on.

And on.

And on.

What appears at once

as a beginning

becomes soon

an End.

And begins again.

And again.

And again.

Around.

And around.

And a

Round.
