There is many a lesson we can learn from Nature....
The Nature speaks to us...The Nature speaks to us in so many ways
In words unsaid; in silence it sways
In all the possible dimensions
In the swish of the ocean waves,
In the roar of the storms and gales
In the chirrup of birds on bright days
In the buzzing of the bees on flowers gay...
The dew drops, shining through sunrays
The snow-topped mountains in cloudy haze
The clouds in the sky, when up we gaze,
The thunder, the showers, the lightening, the blaze,
The volcanoes erupting from bowels of Earth
Spewing lava with rage on firth...
They all speak to us in sorrow and mirth.
Every morning when the sun rises forth
It speaks to us in centuries of wise codes
How consistently it follows the night
How religiously in disperses the light
How it never overshadows the Moon,
Whose gentle light can make hearts swoon.
The Nature has a story in the Sun and the Moon!
The trees that canopy the Earth with shade
Grow from mere seeds to their mighty state
The diamonds that shine out of a mere coal
The desert that shines like a water hole-
The mirage that deceives but keeps our hope,
That keeps us going, that helps us cope
The Nature holds us, when we go down the slope...
The colours, the hues, the images bright
The glow, the shadows, the scattered light,
The reflection of Moon in a pool by roadside
The swish of the wings of birds in flight
The cicada humming in the dead of the night
The moths, the owl's hoots, the fireflies
They all tell us the tales of the Night...
Then often on a starry night
We forget our way and in dreams take flight
When gently sleep whispers all night
Songs of sorrow, of hope, of our plight
When dreams gently rock us in our sleep
In slumber we learn some lessons deep
The repose gives us health in its sweep...
The whispers, the silence, the shadows deep
Are all Nature's gifts for us to keep
If only we care to listen to its songs
Nature tells the truth, never goes wrong...
