Word Of The Day Challenge/ Sunny

 

sunny day invites

take a dip in the sea

corona Virus glares
dare not break the lockdown

stay put in your house

‘how long you are going to stay’
I sigh

‘As long as you are afraid of me’

making trees barren

The mighty withering wind 

Blows off all the leaves

———————-

 clinging  to the trees 

leaves know not how to survive 

the withering wind

———————————————-

cling on to the truth

fear, not the withering wind

fight with all your might

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #63 – Magical

“Every moment there are a million miracles happening around you: a flower blossoming, a bird tweeting, a bee humming, a raindrop falling, a snowflake wafting along with the clear evening air. There is magic everywhere. If you learn how to live it, life is nothing short of a daily miracle.” 
― Sadhguru, Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #65

PROMPT FOR THIS WEEK

Challenge 65

Too much of consumerism

disrupted

the balance of nature

Kings, Maharajas,

politicians, businessmen, rich

were busy in money making

as money brings POWER

public, either terrified to raise a voice

or whining for their sorrows, or

oblivious to nature’s balance

accepting all as their destiny, gods fury

Some had a clear vision

the first on to start a movement to save sacred trees

along

with Bishnoi Villagers

dared to raise a voice and saved the trees

it took 363 lives to awaken the people from their slumbers

then came CHIPKO MOVEMENT

led by

Sundarlal Bahuguna, who explained to villagers

of the importance of trees to the environment

of the soil erosion due to the cutting of trees

of draught

of pollution, pure air

very slowly people were awakening

whole India was stirred by

Save Silent Velly Movement

Jungle Bachao Andolan

Appiko Movement

Narmada Bachao Andolan

etc. etc.

All visionaries are  doing their bit

but,

what the rest in the world is doing

waiting for the third world war for water

or, consuming to turn this planet a desert?

God knows

when the whole world sings in unison

enough is enough

Let us all save the Mother Earth
