Brush To Brush - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Something peculiar, but mind is gazing,
In the deep grassland to swing in wind,
Breeze is touching tongue to move on,
Wind is brushing grass in this land.

Stormy weather has made ill to all trees,
Now cyclone's brush with death changes them,
A brush with death they have now in feelings,
It would better brush up on green leaves
Before they wilt and fall down in ground,
A brush brushes and paints the wall of sky.

Stars in sky who are in brush with death,
Still they criticize tall trees in Earth,
They criticize very short grass of ground,
Tress and grass brush off all critic stars.
Stars try to explain that special they are,
They dazzle in very far up above the sky,
They watch everyone from top to bottom,
All creatures respect and watch them,
But trees and grass only look at sky,
They do not know much about sky and stars,
Hearing stars, trees and grass brush aside
They brush aside explanation of stars,
Brushing off and brushing aside them,
Now they brush their leaves in tender wind.

    Natural calamaties are disastrous, but that is a part of natural life, we are helpless. But a flood after taking so many lives when calmed makes the land more fertile. (Report)Reply

    nicely penned-

    A brush brushes and paints the wall of sky
    ...
    They brush aside explanation of stars,
    Brushing off and brushing aside them,
    Now they brush their leaves in tender wind

    To query a star? How would it speak about itself? Imaginative write from the perspective of stars, the wind, trees and the shivering grasses feeling the approach of a tremendous storm. Stay deep and rooted they must tell themselves as this poem has fine roots and whimsical feelings. (Report)Reply

    They dazzle in very far up above the sky,
    They watch everyone from top to bottom,
    All creatures respect and watch them,
    But trees and grass only look at sky, .a fine poem indirectly pointing to the critical minds.......... very fine examples to illustrate the idea....... liked it very much dear poet Kumaramani.. tony

    A very sensible appraisal of what nature can do for the furtherance of life on this planet or to create catastrophic imbalance to jolt its inhabitants. This brush of stars with earth has far reaching consequences. Thanks for sharing this poem with a deep meaning and implications.
    Stormy weather has made ill to all trees.....
    Stars in sky who are in brush with death,
    They brush aside explanation of stars
