An Ode To Nature Poem by Ratnakar Mandlik

An Ode To Nature

Rating: 4.9


In serene guise a celestial beauty
You profess principle of equality.
Embodiment of benevolence,
At times you are cruelty's essence.
Oh greatest master craftsman,
Is human for you mere pawn?

Oh darling master of the universe
Your incarnations are quite diverse.
Enchanting are your landscapes
Mountains and valleys are picturesque.
You are no doubt very great
With motley forms, though intricate.

Oh bountiful and beloved creator,
Lovable are your acts as the provider.
Awesome are your forms when in rage,
Devastating then becomes it's rampage.
Cloud bursts and deluge on one hand
On other are parched human n parched land.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

The beginning instantly thrust me into the poem, form, parity, and distinctiveness. The imagery flows throughout, attaching itself to the mind as it carries the reader into the creation of visual, psyche and body. It all worked for me and I will enjoy continuing reading your poetry. I may not have time to comment fully on each poem, however, I will note its spirit for you. Elizabeth

Awesome poem, I liked it and my favorite pick from your poem....... Awesome are your forms when in rage, Devastating then becomes it's rampage. Cloud bursts and deluge on one hand On other are parched human n parched land.

2 – " master" ? i'm used to thinking of 'Mother Nature'. [[ but I found this in a Google posting: “..In practice master (particularly as a verb) is used in many contexts where dominance is more relevant than gender, …” ]] a fickle 'master' indeed. bri :) to MyPoemList

1 – “awe” is a good word for the topic! " mot•ley incongruously varied in appearance or character; disparate." [ a 'new' word adjective for me? ] " Devastating then becomes it's rampage. [ use its, not it's, of course. ] Cloud bursts and deluge on one hand On other are parched human n parched land." [ i think 'n' is considered proper ]
