Tirupathi Chandrupatla


See and Feel


See the tree
That shed its leaves
To face the cold winds
Of winter.

Feel the sweetness
Of the honey that bees
Gathered from flowers
In spring.

See the contentment
Of a cow ruminating
In the shade of a tree
In summer.

See the anxiety
Of the farmer
Awaiting the rains
In monsoon season.

See the effort
Of parents to provide
Better future
For their children.

See the way chicks
Open their beaks
When mother bird
Feeds them.

Feel the sharpness
Of the sword
See the power
Of the written word
Feel the love
Hidden in the heart
See the success
Of man's thoughts...

Until the ability
Of observation
Is completely lost
In seasons and activities
In trees and hills
In the nests that birds build
See all that you can see
With renewed curiosity.

    A giant of a poem, It is a good thing to experience the joyful things
    in life. Communing with nature, a walk through the woods or just
    sit and think about the many wonders of the universe and it's
    magnificence. An excellent write. (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
