Nature As A Gift (Morning in room)

The sun rays peeking through the curtains

Spread their shine and encompass the sky

The dewdrops on the lotus leaves

Radiate their sparkle in the sunlight

The temple bells reinforce peace and faith

The grazing cattle train us to be calm

The birds fly with dew drops clinging to their wings

And teach us to keep our vision in sight

Chanting devotees, studying students,

Peasants working on the field

It reiterates that hard work is the key

As we search for peace and meaning of life

The dancing butterflies, the ripe fruits on trees

The cool wind that blows caressing your skin

The swaying trees and colourful clouds

And the yellow leaves shadowing the park

I cherished the smoothness of the petals

Breathed in the fragrance of flowers

I saw the pecking birds and fallen leaves

amongst the tall, green grass

Nature inspires…if we choose to learn

I heard the stories the elders exchanged

The melodious laughter of the children as they played

Every element of the Universe plays its part in shaping us

    Magical performance of Nature is quite unparalleled, and there must born another Nature to compete with!

    No one is empowered to dictate terms to Nature which has its own schedule never to be disturbed nor its track interrupted!

    Intervention of humankind has the damaging impact of Nature becoming ferocious, leaving its unfathomable deadly consequences that humanity may find them unable to cope with!

    How nice and polite is Nature, calling for our reciprocal approach that keeps it in tact and facilitate showering its bounties on us to observe and enjoy!

    Let us not be cruel enough to pollute Nature, for it’s empowered with unthinkable energy to retard back and strike, baffling us with no remedy in sight!
