Bells Of Faith

Bells Of Faith short poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

Behold the bells hanging
In the old temple’s premises
High above the tall pine trees
And the distant snow-covered peaks

Do they really occupy the space
Among the clouds atop the hills
Or is it just an illusion
Extended up to the horizon ?

I think they appear so high
Because of the Faith they uphold
In the existence of a benign deity
Reigning over the whole landscape

The Faith that never dwindles
And sustains the devotees’ strength
To go through the life’s travails
With trust in the Supreme Master

And listen to the bells chiming
As the wind passes by them
Isn’t it a song of humble surrender
To the will of the ultimate creator ?

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. .

The Faith In Our Cause

When darkness dampens your devotion, The will is there but devoid of emotion; Remember to hold your head high And kiss every violent wind which passes by. That violent wind takes you to places unknown, Places of future palaces and
