A Thought for His Bounty


Isn’t it amazing? 

How silently, modestly,

summer plants start blooming, 

filling the surroundings

with myriad, delightful colours and 

a truly pleasant sight. 

Too eager…impatient

to even wait for leaves, 

the bubbly, irrepressible Amaltas flowers

sprout up to deck

the bare, skeletal branches

with yellow pearls.

Awesome indeed! Ain’t it?


What a precious, divine gift,

to compensate for

the scorching vagaries

of the summer season! 

Let there be gratitude

in our hearts for Him, and

a commitment to care for,

conserve His bounty.
