Sonnet: An Artist’s Life
Poverty wakes up a Poetic genius!
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Bereavement of loved ones kindles the fire;
Serendipity, a signal glorious;
Disease, sadness, solitude- playing lyre!
Search for human love sharpens intellect;
Love-failure turns one to spiritualism;
Despair- a new faith/hope tries to inject;
Divinity takes o’er from materialism.
The search for truth and God within begins;
Sense of values and peace of mind surface;
Remorse, atonement starts for one’s past sins,
And man finds his way out of his life’s maze.
Devotion, dedication, thus comes on;
A Heav’nly direction is now reborn.
