POEM ON MOTHER NATURE
THE EARTH’S ANSWER
Oh mother, dear mother,
Happy are we on you,
Dancing, juggling, and living together.
Happy are the greens on you,
Waving, giving shades and fruits.
Happy are the cattle on you,
Drinking, chewing and sleeping.
For some, time fails to shower happiness.
Quake followed by heavy winds and rain
Changed their lifestyle and
Made them to part from their members.
Dancing may sometime lead to tell a mourned story.
Juggling may pay way for struggling.
There’s only remembrance of “lived together”.
Greens fail to give shade and fruits
As they are no more.
A sleep for the cattle have lost
As they drain in rain.
Yes mother. It’s you, who is responsible for these.
Tell us with no hesitation, who disturbed your sleep?
She only answered “You my children”.
The answer was all enough.
Selfish man forgets mother,
Drilling a feet is far less, for a hundred.
The cries of trees are hardly listen by man.
For he dare not care to slice them into pieces.
The morning mist dies of instantly when it
Happens to see the smoke out of factories.
The companies with the factories smoke
Spoiled the nature of ‘dear air’.
Is a ‘sorry’ enough for what we had done to you?
But she is very much satisfied with it.
The most patient mother forgives her children
And goes to sleep again.
Believing a change in minds of sons
Would soon happen.
