Rainforest Queen - Poem by Prasad Natarajan

Rainforest Queen

While the world is still oblivious to the breaking light,

She casts her misty veil across the mighty Shola trees,

Moon beam is fleeting, while Venus is blinking bright,

She glides whispering sweet fragrance through the breeze,


Whistling away in admiration, those wings in the dense,

Flaming radish crown of a pecker glowing at your glance,

Pebbles clashing for your embrace, ripples are tense,

Over the thick branches a Langur dancing in wild trance,


Burrowing webs awaiting her new visiting foolish mate,

An orange Scarlet flashing his breast behind the green,

Watching her moves the dwarf fisher on water skate,

She disappears at the first light, the rain forest queen.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Poets Note: Based on my recent visit to the mighty rainforest in South India. I've tried to bring out the visuals witnessed besides the gentle stream flowing from the mighty river Bhadra.

    And bring out the visuals you have! So very beautifully! Love the whole idea of a RainForest Queen. Your beautiful imagery takes the reader along on your RainForest trek. Very nicely done! (Report) Reply
