We had wonderful Sankirtan in temple yesterday. At the beginning I sat grudgingly for I was in the mood to hear some lecture and was not ready for sankirtan. But 10 minutes into the program and I felt so light and so peaceful. If just the name of the Almighty brings so much joy; I cannot even fathom what his actual presence might bring.
I am not a poet certainly not one who can haiku. But then there is a contest at Writetribe, how can I not participate. The prompt is the picture given.
When I looked at the picture the green of the leaves struck me. Also the berries reminded me of ‘karand’ a berry widely available till some years back in South Kanara but not so anymore. These berries were used to make pickles and they have a pungent taste. I am told that it is sweet when ripened. But who allowed them to ripen, we were too busy plucking them, wiping on our shirts and eating them. 🙂
So folks sorry for the amateurish attempt and please forgive me for my lapses.
