Resilience of Nature and Life

By Somali K Chakrabarti


Resilience in Adversity


Tender shoots,

Outgrowths of an uprooted tree,

Stir and wake from a dormant state,

Thrusting their way up, crack open a hard

Stone surface; in search of sunlight,

They claim their right

To live

Resilience of Nature and Life !!

Lei: A wreath for your soul  is a string of short poems reflecting on nature, life, illusion and inspiration.
