A Breezing Scholar

This gentle breeze flows through gardens
Stopping by the jasmines, collecting their fragrance
Making love to the roses, garnering their scent,
Going over the hills and exploring their beauty,
Uniting with the clouds, hoarding their moisture,
Creating harmonious whispers with pines,
Propagating waves through daffodils,
Making all trees and flowers dance to its tune
Permeating the music of nightingales,
The breeze’s in love with all nature’s creations
Conglomerating varied experience by uniting with nature.

A scholar’s like this gentle breeze,
He harnesses all opportunities like the breeze,
Gaining experience through interactions,
Amassing knowledge through learning.
A scholar’s like this gentle breeze,
He unites with his learning tools as if
In love, focused, indulging in obsessive learning,
Conceiving peace and harmony with learning process.
A scholar’s like a gentle breeze,
He propagates the knowledge he garners
He permeates with his radiance that shines
As his knowledge becomes mature, saturated with
Moisture of experience, he pours the rain of wisdom
Serving the humanity, eradicating the darkness of ignorance
With his radiance, opulence gathered from everywhere
From every experience and interaction, like this gentle breeze.
