We humans have messed around With Mother Nature and her eco-system For years and years Decades and decades Centuries and centuries Felling gazillions of trees Turning forests into concrete jungles Filling ponds, lakes, rivers and seas With tons and tons of toxic waste Releasing enough carbon monoxide into the air To wreck the entire troposphere The list of sins against Nature goes on and on With no end in sight Given all this, who are we to complain When Mother Nature has had enough And unleashes her fury on us Through earthquakes and tsunamis Avalanches and volcanoes Hurricanes and tornadoes Floods and droughts And so on Remember, Mother Nature has blessed us With oodles of riches In the form of plants and trees Mountains and forests Ponds, lakes, rivers, seas and oceans And last but not the least, oxygen! It is time we show her some gratitude And more importantly, respect and compassion And stop messing around with the eco-system Remember the famous old saying Live and let live It doesn't mean infrastructure shouldn't be developed We can build roads We can build a railway network We can build houses We can build schools and colleges We can build hospitals We can build libraries However, as my grandfather used to say There is a limit to everything And we should also plant trees Build gardens and parks Switch to renewable sources of energy And cut down severely on emissions A balance should be maintained After all, messing around with Mother Nature Will only bring about our own downfall There have been enough natural disasters Caused by human negligence Let's not add to the list Which is already longer than the river Nile!
Its beams pull at the heart strings, each a different noise. No ray on a futile descent. All with purpose and poise. Each stream of light reinvents, the palette of colors our earth bares. Truly nothing compares.
She used to be celebrated. Thru water splashes, river streams and water fountains. As the mountains changed to their greeneries. A scenery that always compels true children of the planet to want to run across it's open fields. What happened to her Joy's ?Nothing really. There's even rumours about her even forgetting her origin's. Truth is thru climate change, She also evolved way passed the comfort norms of the rest of the human species. As the rest of the nature side still rejoices while the plants, trees, flowers still flourish. With everything else still sticking to their traditions she's still celebrated. Spring - Swoo
Water longed and gasped at the sunset colors above her lapping them up in her mists and rolling waves she took these tumbling breaths to exhale the palette across the bare sands, persuading them over and over again through time till they too tumbled as grains in the radiant slurry
"There now, Earth and Sky. This is how we are One."
You say life is a disaster I tell you not Have you watched the sun rise up? Have you seen the flowers at early dawn; The way the face of the sun is seen glowing in the dew drop. Take a moment to see life is the world around you. You say life is a disaster I tell you not Have you smelt the earth at the birth of rain? Have you let the wind give you a loving embrace; As the sweet smell lingers around and calms every soul it touches. Stop whatever you are doing to see life is the world around you. You say life is a disaster I tell you not Have you seen the moon kiss the night sky And how it brings every hidden star alive; The way it lights up the sky and illuminates the beauty of the dark night. Take a moment for yourself and see that life is the world around you. You say life is a disaster I tell you not Have you seen the colours on the butterfly? Have you watched a tiger prancing by? They both are different in size but yet so majestic in their own way.
Take a moment Take your time Take note of what’s passing by. You say life is a disaster I tell you To feel the wind, it is waiting to embrace you. Admire the beauty in nature when the sun is born. Take a deep breath of the earth and watch it as it moves. Use your sense, Use them all And let your restless soul calm down. You say life is a disaster I tell you not Life is You and everything around you. There is beauty in every little being; Even if life is a disaster
A walk through the Gardens by the Bay And the super tree Grove skyway All by my own I felt it was enough for me To take it all by my own Such beauty and escasty To find the love in nature Is what life had given me A gift of a new place A garden which is never Enough to visit one more time The winds kissing me all across Keeping no barrier in a foreign land!
A place which still makes me happy when I visualize back and forth. The cool breezes and the greenary with the hint of flowers Unique in it's own way No comparison Yet beautiful love All throughout :)
Recently visited Gardens by the Bay in Singapore made me understand the power of nature all over again!
