Earth shining in Glory -Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

posted Aug 14, 2015, 9:35 AM by A Billion Stories
Our Milky Way is shining,
with millions and millions of stars.
Our beloved star Sun,
along with eight other planets around.
Orbits the Milky Way,
finishes one orbit in two hundred and fifty million years.
Somewhere in the galaxy,
echoed a voice in surprise.

“See there the Earth shining in glory
how come it got its light?”
A sweet and soft reply comes:
“It is not the mere light,
It is the light of knowledge,
It is the light of service,
It is the light of peace.
Specially radiating from Prasanthi Nilayalam

When Earth completes its eightieth orbit
Carrying a great soul in its bosom”

Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam
