Who Am I?- Sulo Moorthy

I love to paint pictures, but I use no brush

I sprinkle seeds to take root, but I'm neither a farmer nor a gardener

I do cut and chop at times, but never in the kitchen

I produce talking snakes and flying pigs out of thin paper, but I'm no magician

I travel many places without leaving my seat, but I'm not a heavenly being

I sit, stare and sigh most my working hours, yet no one dares to fire me

I receive no pension nor a monthly salary, yet I choose not to quit my work
Others know me by my voice rather than my face

I marvel at others' work, but my very own I tend to doubt a lot

Silk and scent do not entice me as books and blogs do

I hold a wealth that counts so much, yet others see me as poor and unemployed

I call my work a ministry, but I do not work within the church

Who Am I?
