Sonnet No. 9


Vishnu, protector of world and mankind :
Also Dharma : meaning moral order -
Worshipped widely as major deity :
Known and recognized thru his Avatars.

Ten forms, assumed by Vishnu, gravitates
On lands; fighting certain evil types -
Took on form of a fish: warning Manu :
Earliest man; take heed of huge deluge.

Sent ships, ord'ring he load all live species:
Seeds of every plant: task completed, seas
Flooded: therefore Vishnu saved all life
From perishing!
