any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Leave it to humankind. Man will solve his problems the best way he thinks fit at the expense of nature. Wonderful write Sumana!Hank
If I were mother nature, I will give these worms a harsh lesson every now and then ~ A good one Sumana ~
What a beautiful tree the Neem is. (We don't have them.) I admire these neme for allowing the cawing crow. An act of kindness, I think. I would, however, grieve along with the emerald pond seeing the nets meant to trap birds. And, as for humans, I'd say we need to learn from the neme tree about kindness.
I think these worms are given lessons from time to time but they have a problem listening and taking heed. I like how your poem reminds us that Nature is there but needs to be cared for. What a beautiful tree!
oh this turned rather sad...to be the place those birds were taken...would be hard to deal with...i would love to be a tree for many reasons...this not one of them...though i think there is much to life we can learn from trees....
An interesting perspective. It appears that the Neem tree has already begun to give us lessons also...http://www.discoverneem.com/neem-weed.html
This is very interesting, to try to get inside the power and feelings of nature. Different and unique.
i luv the refocus from 'if i were' to 'would i'have a good Wednesdaymuch love...
I really liked that shift too. Nice work.
Oh my such a strong view of the weakness of human worms. Excellent.
"Omnipotent humansKnow how to harness NatureTo meet all his demandsAnd cast Her away to silent tearsIf I were HerWould I ever letThese audacious worms live?I wonder….."I wonder too if mother nature is going to stand for much more of this. I think not. Loved this poem Sumana.
Sumana,A lovely consideration, to be that little bit closer to nature. An interesting perspective!!Eileen
Nicely penned, Sumana. The epistrophe repetition at the end of each stanza is haunting and thought provoking.
This is so wonderfully thought provoking Sumana. A beautiful ode to nature and all it endures by man.
Lovely take on the prompt Sumana....Mother nature is all about giving, only if human beings could learn from nature.
loved the closing a lot ..very nice Sumana
An introspective piece, Sumana. What would we do...
Good poem, Sumana and I enjoyed the points of view you have highlighted. We harm nature at our peril...
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
