There have been a lot of great people who have spoken about Nature from time and again, yet, here I am speaking about Her in my own way…
‘NATURE’ - This undoubtedly is one of the most comforting words I have known ever since I started learning this lovely language called English…Learning curve that is still in progress... :)
I don’t wish to be a bud, really,
For I know I can never do justice to the innocence they are bundled with.
I would however wish I could have the time in life, to witness their growth so heavenly,
The peace I seldom get, I could be bestowed with.
I don’t wish to be a flower, yes I say this,
For I know I can never do justice to the intense beauty it possesses.
I would however wish I always have in sight, their bliss,
For all the color and the soothe they provide my senses.
I don’t wish to be a sapling,
For I know I can never do justice to the purity it possesses all through its journey of life,
I would however wish I have enough space around,
To keep planting and see them grow profound.
I don’t wish to be a tree, strangely yes,
For I know I can never do justice to its altruistic quality of GIVING till its survival.
I would however, always wish to be in its mighty shade and security,
Wish its love and comfort unmatched; be conferred on me unasked and forever.
I don’t wish to be a fruit, neither do I wish to be a veggie,
I don’t wish to be a leaf nor a branch bearing them all.
For I can never do justice to either, however hard I try,
For the intrinsic worth of theirs is Supreme of all.
I don’t wish to be a mountain, neither finer sand particle,
For I can never live up to their serenity and the value they add to manhood,
I don’t wish to be WATER, the visible oxygen of our lives, I can’t be…
For it is Infinitely Precious with a worth impossible to attain.
I can’t wish to be sky, the limitless cover up above the world,
Neither can I wish to be the clouds giving us the ever required environmental shower.
Not the sun shine that brings life to our existence, Nor air that makes us exist,
Atmosphere being the face of Mother Nature…How can I even come close?
Mother Nature, the biggest asset this universe has in its make,
The reason Earth is having a living, a soul in it,
The reason behind our presence, reason behind every breath we take,
The biggest asset known, yet disregarded in a big way by mankind isn’t it…?!!!
Taking care of Her is certainly our real future! Think about it and take some time out for making the real future, in addition to your near future! I promise I shall do my bit.
