The Winds of Change




The calm winds bring relief on a sunny noon
   Strong gust on a hot day belches dragon’s inferno
Freezing wind slices thro the body benumbing sense
    Like a killer's knife scalding with a devilish intent
Sit by a seaside, enjoy the sunset as gentle winds
    Lap the young waves to play with small shingles
The winds of change now sweep our planet
     Raging tempests redefine the contours like never before

(The poem is a reminder to us for need to preserve the nature and reckless deforestation is denuding the earth and posing fresh dangers and leading to  natural calamities)

  2. We should preserve it and give back to mother nature. I don't know how world will be in 20 years. I was reading National Geographic few days back and was amazed how they were talking about making mug and hay houses for climate control.

    A lovely poem with words of wisdom!

  11. We went to Kukke Subrahmanya temple in Karnataka recently. Normally, the narrow road went through forest like area until a few years back. Now, the roads are broadened and many guest houses are coming up! Felt sad.

    I remembered this, when I read your beautiful poem, Rahulji! Very well written words.

    1. Sandhaya, unfortunately, we do not believe in creation with harmony! It pains me immensely when I see in places like Hong Kong and Singapore where I am currently traveling, there is a perfect harmony with nature! We have a long way to go...

  19. ah, put some snow in to it and you almost have my last days..
    Very powerful poem!

    Some words from Job
    "Does the rain have a father?
    Who is father to the drops of dew?
    Who is the mother of the ice?
    Who gives birth to the frost from the sky
    and even the surface of the ocean is frozen?"

    Happy week to you!
