lalitha iyer

(7.6.1967 / Kochi, India)

I kneel before you

When nature dances
in greens and blues
birds sing
petals bring
breeze wing
and blooms spring
every beauty
nature shy
unfolds in her
enclosed skirts
I kneel down
to smell the ground
its so sweet
in rain and retreat
the gardens are fresh
ever new beauties rush
when I view
the morning dew
the whispers queue
in the night
filled with delight
Oceans raging
Oceans staging
shows of wonder
deep within
of aquatic cherubins
I just melt away
into nothing to say
I steal from nature
i have no feature
she is simply abundant
and I shocked to my bend

We humans
melting into non-entities
in front of nature's amenities.
