In Search of Serenity

In a snowy mountain forest
where the crystal clear fountains are
running down the hill dancing,
giggling with an innocent joy,
I stand there to enjoy the calmness,
the purity, the natural aroma
far away from the hue and cry
of selfish, complex human inhabitants.

There birds chirp, animals play
but nobody does any harm to others.
In the midst of these cheerful surroundings
I like to sit at the feet of an enlightened sage
whose very face brings to me an absolute assurance.

I forget the predicament the world has,
the grief of grappling mankind,
I come to know all these are conquerable and
which will soon disappear
at the blessings of the great soul,
ushering in the dawn of enlightenment,
glimpse of which has already arrived.
