Faith…A Poem by Durva /કાવ્ય રચના…દુર્વા વિ. ત્રિવેદી

 મારી દિકરી દુર્વા ની એક કાવ્ય રચના……

Faith
Under the age old willow tree
A man finds himself
Enveloped by the haze of the frigid early morn

The fog is everywhere
Spreading darkness alone
But this man somehow
Looks far beyond

The willow weeps
Of death to come
But the man keeps
Life and light

The frosty air has a bite
Bitter winds and freezing cold
But this man has a strength
His warmth comes from within

Marvelous and miraculous, he is
Youthful under the willow
Radiant from within the fog
Warmhearted despite the winds

His smile is in his eyes
Eyes that see
So much beauty

Undisturbed by the fog
He drinks it with every breath

Under the dark shadow of the hovering willow
He stands only taller to carry the weight

Without shivering to acknowledge the frost
He spreads the warmth that he holds inside

With so much goodness from within
He’s surrounded not by evil nor by sin
Simply circumstance that plagues him now

And only when it burns itself
Can a candle offer
Light and warmth
Life and light

Under the age old willow tree
A man finds himself
Enveloped by the haze of the frigid early morn

Where does he find this strength?
Unwavering
Faith

    what a true picture of a towering personality! !
    a strong man gets the strength from the large tall howering willow ,a symbol of gurudev, as i interpret.i think Durva has a great sense of drawing a poetic picture of a very great warrior who has determined to win .
    i liked these lines very much.

    “Marvelous and miraculous, he is
    Youthful under the willow
    Radiant from within the fog
    Warmhearted despite the winds”

    very nice,
    love,
