Tanka -Vanishing forests

Standing lost and sad
In the middle of nowhere
Greenery vanished
Here was rich floral forest
Today a cracked barren land

HAIKU # 97 & 98 Pollution- Wounds Of carelessness

         Climate, seasons change
     A result of Flowing grace
Invisible Air

Heat unbearable
       Destroyer of life on earth
                 Air water- coolant

HAIKU # 82 -86 Five elements – Unpredictable

When the things are not balanced whether in nature or our life, the results are always disaster.

AIR

Soft breeze gentle bliss
Strong winds storm of destruction
Absence instant death

WATER

Drops nurturing life
Excess flood of destruction
Absence lifeless Earth

FIRE

Flames a glowing warmth
Molten lava volcanoic
Absence tastless life

EARTH

Green and moist growth food
Hard surface barren dry lands
Too Soft soil week roots

EITHER/SPACE

Profound purity

Humans can never pollute

Power of shuna

Tanka #1 Trees – lonely magnificence

My mute companions
Tall,ageless,rooted trees
Silent witnesses
Holding secrets of mankind
Can you please whisper to me?

Dear friends,
Most of the shoots have been captured while moving. From Jammu &Kashmir to Himachal Pradesh the magnificent and ever changing beauty is a treat for eyes. I always think that there may be so much hidden treasures in the trees, which are there for generations to generations. They are intriguing with their shapes and colors. Some naked without the protection of their coverings (the leaves) stand tall and proud in their beauty.

Let’s take care not to destroy them for our selfish use because our life span is just a fraction of theirs. And they are the Symbol of hope and prosperity for human lives yet to come.

SOUL’S SEARCH

M

Slowly each step leading onwards,

Is it really onwards?

Backwards may seem more justified,

As this path I traveled  countless times,

There have been soft roses to tread on,

Then no dearth of thorns too,

There have been more tears,

Laughters far and few,

There have been more sadness ,

Less and less of joy to see,

Despite my intentions not to return,

I come back time and again,

See more and more deterioration,

But then the question remains….

Why am I attracted towards  the EARTH?

Like metals   toward the MAGNET,

Where as being a Soul  I am free and immortal,

With limitless spaces to reside in.

EARTH DAY-Wakeup Call

M

    

                                                                   Green Earth for everybeings  survival 

       

Hope sooner than later  we  wake up , 

Shake up ourself to face the reality,

Why are we are destroying the Mother Earth first,

Then bringing the Earth Day to save it afterwards,

The duality of our personalities are seen so clear,

On one hand we are destroying the nature in our greed 

Then try to justify our mindless  actions in the name of development


This is only a transit, not permanent home for anyone,

We are here only  till our breath and our heart beat,

Why are we destroying the elements we are made up of, 

TODAY…. 

Why can ‘nt we breathe  without thought of toxins in the air? 

Why can’ nt we drink the natural water without fear? 

Why can’t we freely enjoy the fruits direct from the trees? 

There are so many WHYS and not one good  reason to satisfy. 

Progress and development may be the need of the day,

But for this is’ nt pollution a big price to pay,

There are more suffering than happiness today,

And more binding than liberation ,

Only way is act with Awareness in whatever we do, 

It may make this world better place to stay.

                             Rivers our life lines


Is’nt it  a blessing that Sun and Moon are out of our reach,

For us to pollute in the name of progress and modernization,

Otherwise Sun Day and Moon Day would’nt  have been far away,

If we may stop  this quest to create a better world for future,

 Perhaps Mother Earth will see our future generations

Living not in fear but  in harmony with the nature,

Without  days to remind  what Earth,Water,Air means for existance.
