An Ode To Nature - Poem by Ratnakar Mandlik

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.

Poet: Ratnakar D Mandlik

    what was certain?
    that led to the feeling of pain
    it was simple stop of breath
    and causing pause or death

    " 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.

    “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 ]

    Lovely poem. Nature’s benevolence and wreath go hand in hand. But a burnt forest brings out the beautiful spring growth. (Report)Reply

    A wonderful ode to nature.

    Ode is one of the most difficult forms of poetry! You have wonderfully handled it! Beautifully structured! My favorite lines: Oh bountiful and beloved creator/Lovable are your acts as the provider! I have just written two such type of poems! If you could find time, please pay a visit to my poem Ode to My Conscience'. For this magnificent poem-10 (Report)Reply

    This is just awesome. Nature has its own ways to act- sometimes lovable and sometimes vengeful, sometimes protecting and sometimes destructing. Thanks for a great ode on Nature.
    In serene guise a celestial beauty
    At times you are cruelty's essence.
    Lovable are your acts as the provider.
    Awesome are your forms when in rage,
