Nature Cry

As the blazing sun

Dips its toes

Into the emerald blues,

Nary a cloud

On the pure blue sky,

As the larks head home

For the night,

Do you hear 

The sound of silence,

As a gleeful

Nature sings.

Nature sings,

As its self professed

Best of the best,

Keep themselves confined 

To their homes,

Scared of the tiniest unseen,

Nature heals.

Nature heals

Of the sacrileges heaped,

Cleansing slowly

Accumulated garbages

From time immemorial,

Nature sings.

Nature sings,

Do you hear

Nature sing?

Listen carefully,

It may be fleeting.

Sure as sun will rise

In the east,

So will we.

Enjoy the pristine

While you can.

Oh ye of short memories,

We are born

To destroy

All that is pure and free.

We never heard

Nature cry.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

      1. No, I don’t. We allow individuals, corporations, governments to push and shove to make money for themselves, and kid ourselves there’s always something in it for us. What’s a rainforest anyway? Aren’t convenience foods and cattle feed so much more important? I don’t see that there is a lesson to be learned, it’s just basic human cupidity that always comes first.

  1. I like the repeated lines–nature sings, nature sings, nature heals, nature heals. Like we are so oblivious we need to hear it twice. Nature is definitely benefiting from our quarantine, fewer cars on the road, planes in the air, reduced production of goods so less energy used and less pollution spewed into our air and water. Maybe she has to cleanse herself of our sins now and then.
