The True Saviour

While taking a stroll outside
Praising the deep, dark but starry night
Cool breeze, bright stars and the lovely moonlight
Like molten silver dripping from misty skies

When a painful cry caught my attention,
A tiny plant it was and to the ground it had fallen
Separated in one stroke, from its brethren

I decided to let it suffer not
But planted it in a new earthen pot

In a few days, it regained its sheen
From dull yellow to fresh green
Its joy could be easily seen

“You seem hale now I see,
Feel obliged forever and  be grateful to me”
Said I, swelling with pride and vanity.
With a mystic smile said he
“Though thankful I am to you but grateful only to Thee”

“But I saved your life, so why not just me? "
“Coz you were sent by Him only
The true savior of all beings is almighty
The good God lets no being suffer lonely”
Pat came his crisp reply with a meaning deep to imply

God helps all of us in the hour of need
For world is a rosary, every being but a bead
To His divine abode we all must proceed
With faces smiling and hearts without ego and greed.


  1. beautiful and thoughtful. :)

    my fav lines
    Like molten silver dripping from misty skies
    For world is a rosary, very being but a bead

    and nice pic too:)

  2. Nice one. God comes and helps but not directly. He helps through someone else. That is why there is this saying: Dheivam Manushya Roopena (God in the form of a human being.)

  3. So true, and an amazing narration. A wonderful lesson learnt from a wonderful incident.
