TIME FOR NATURE

 

Every time, we ramble on about how we feel about the greenery and the beauty of the trees that grow about us. This Environment day however, I tried to listen to what the plants had to tell me, this year’s theme being “TIME FOR NATURE”.

This simple poem are the thoughts of a paddy plant reverberated through my words.

THIS IS A ONE WAY CONVERSATION BETWEEN A PADDY PLANT AND A FARMER.

Oh my dearest,

Was it the soil that caressed my soul,

Or was it the field on your palm?

Was it my seed that sprouted,

Or was it the smile on your lips?

 

Was it the sun that scorched bright,

Or was it your glowing shadow?

Was it the pregnant clouds’ young-lings that wet my feet,

Or was it the tangy rain from your temple?

 

Was it the sea of blue that watched me grow,

Or was it your starry eye?

Was it the brooding sky that rumbled,

Or was it your flaming gut?

 

Was it my grains that grew golden,

Or was it your beating heart?

Was it my leaves that wizened,

Or was it your unlined face?

 

Oh my dearest,

Was it I who banished hunger,

Or was it US?

I loved the expressions-flaming gut and clouds’ younglings. Never heard such a phrase for rain.
Excellent.

Dear Situ,
I would add to your nice poem:
Was it the undulations when I’m grown
That gave me time to kick and be alive
Was it the sublimal green painted on me……. Wonderful trajectory of imagination.
