Plants, Insects And Animals

Plants, insects and animals
Are many times more intelligent
Than most of the people think!

Most of the times
Plants, insects and animals
Say things they want to say to others
In their own minds in human languages!

From a close distance they can hear
What others say in their minds!
From a close distance they can hear
What humans say with their mouth as well!

They learn the human languages
From human race and other plants, insects and animals!
God communicates with them -
They remember God and prostrate in imagination!

    This poem is really nice. At present, humans think that he is the most intelligent. He even tested all other animals and rated their intelligence. But who knows if there are creatures with great intelligence in outer space? If there is any, humans may surely come up with am idea to create an extra-intelligent creature as his representative, Good work. (Report) Reply

    Very true. I used to think one friend in particular who spoke to her plants as if they were intellagent was a bit strange but was always impressed by the amazing growth rate of her private jungle. Well done. (Report) Reply

    This is a very true poem. Plants have a language all their own, and it can be heard in sub microwaves. Insects make certain sounds, that to other insects is a language. And the animals, many thoudands of species, learn not only their own language of sounds, but the human language too. A stag in the forest learns how to be wary of the human, because he makes a big noise followed by death. A fox learns how to sidestep a steel trap laid specifically for him.

    This is a very well thought out poem too. Thank you for sharing and I give you a 10.

    Of course, we all communicate on our own levels. But, I still apologize to my plants whenever I pull off a dead leaf, and I say I'm sorry when I step on a spider, although there was a time when I would catch them and throw them outside! I think everything has feelings and is capable of communication. We may be superior by our way of thinking, but to their's, they are superior and we are not. Nice thought-provoking read, Asif.

    Everything has life. We have limitations to understand others. I appreciate your idea and feeling. (Report) Reply

    sometimes revolutionary thinking happens to everybody when they are disgusted with the happening around; when we become older we appreciate childhood and want to become a chils.....i see parallels here that humans are attracted to the lower versions of evolutions....great imagination...of late i see lots of talents from Bangladesh who write to me often..gtrat going..

    Ants are very intelligent insects, and I suppose in nature animals do communicate in some way, a very interesting poem, thanks
