Sonnet: The Place For Hermits
Why hermits choose to live alone so high?
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Why saints choose forests for building their huts?
By keeping off cities, crowds bring God nigh;
Such decisions require real guts.
In solitude, one realizes God;
In silence, Nature’s beauty is felt more;
The mountain-tops, clouds look like God’s abode;
The wild berries and streams form main food-store.
And time ticks slowly while the air is clean;
An ideal place for meditations oft;
The flora, fauna form a splendid scene;
The voice of Mother Nature is heard soft.
Such environs help saints do yogic feats;
To control breathing, mind and all heart beats.
