Let There Be Peace …….

Let There Be Peace ....... prose poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal


Here I am again to sing a prayer
Invoking the gracious gods above
To bless this beautiful earth of ours
With gifts of unbroken peace and love .

I’ll pray that there be peace on the earth
In its skies and ethereal space
On its vast lands and deep waters
With their myriad forms of creatures

Be it among animals and birds
Trees and herbs and gentle creepers
May it pervade through the whole universe
Helping its inmates to grow and survive

But above all things here mentioned
May it settle deep in the mind of Man
Making it conscious of its supreme value
as the fountain – head of all happiness

I know that in these tumultuous times
Talking of peace may not sound relevant
But to my mind , love and quietitude
Never can be redundant or obsolete .

Hence I am eager to celebrate this day
To promote everlasting peace in the world
Join my voice if you like this campaign
And together we’ll pledge to carry it on .

On International Day Of Peace —- September 21

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .
