Hope in Nature
When hope eroded by life's extremes
as life mocks fermenting a wish to die
I let twilight bathe my drooping eyes
and take my heart to nature's scenes.
Nature flirting in it’s proud green attire
behold the swift squirrel& early magpie
And silky cob webs woven stealthily at night-
swinging in the gusty breeze so sweet.
the foliage spotted by the morning dews
Even in twilight glares as sparkling gems
the splendid silhouette of the far off hillocks
and the glittering zigzag rill in the meadows
the random chorus of the myriad crickets-
well , as much a part of this silence
the busy bees in the rich green garden
buzzing on dahlia, Lilly and jasmine
the ants in line in search of the bread
the sweet roses on thorny stems crimson red
tall palm trees swinging the cuckoos
helping the pepper to creep to its heights.
a pair of parrots preening before take off
the tender calf sucking the cow in gusto
the mango grove carpeted by fallen leaves
A rooster pecking worms in family of chicks
oh! what a time to love and adore
what a time to mind to live on as one
heart rises in the cool morning zephyr
Why wish a heaven above that far?
