harmony


Parrot green buds of nimble grass existed in harmony
with the soil,
sprawled with rampant ease engulfing acres of barren
land,
when the rain plummeted down from the sky in plenty.

a plethora of birds sailing at high altitudes lived in
harmony with the wind,
gliding like small angels with adroit strokes of their
wings,
traversing thousands of kilometers with the
sky, wind, and light as their
savior.

the slimy bodies of fish survived in complete harmony
with the sea,
swimming with their silken grace through tidal
currents of choppy spray,
procreating their offspring's in salt tunnels of ocean
water,
having the tumultuous capacity of toppling
cruise liners,
when inhabiting the colossal form of smoke grey
whales.

the rustic stature of a country dog lived in harmony
with its tail,
wagging it with uninhibited passion while spotting a
friend,
curling it tightly between its legs when attacked by a
hostile bunch of
humans.


a cluster of animated squirrel existed in perfect
harmony with the tree,
traversing through hollow cavities, aided by staccato
movements of their body,
munching and relishing sprouts of bountiful green
foliage.

freshly extracted pails of cream lived in co-ordinated
harmony with the cow,
oozing with melodious rhythm from her ripened teats,
satisfying insatiable desires of consuming
unadulterated milk.

millions of humans on earth survived in harmony with
sunlight,
thoroughly dependant on the first rays of dawn to
start work,
and pitch dark beams of night to fall in a sedative
trance,
a blissfully refreshing, celestial sleep.

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
