Change To Concrete - Poem by MAHTAB BANGALEE

Walking; as if I am walking in the scenery of story
Through mountain, hilly forest, bush of greenery
Walking beneath to peak, peak to beneath as spider
Seeing riding horse outside of forest, inside the tiger
Sovereignty of tiger was known to all native over there
No one lived out of the fort in the reign of Nawabi power
Here there everywhere of this mountain was tiger's chivalry
Since that TigerPass was the name of this land as the glory

Now I am running by vehicle through its divided hill
The land is over there with that's name except the tiger
No forest but greenery bush still carries the memento
Cottage, dark meal, vehicle's cacophony now its deal
Concrete tiger stands now to recollect pre animal power
We are all with the gnomon walk since nature to falsetto


-06/02/18 (14 Lines For Tigerpass, Ctg, Bd.)

Topic(s) of this poem: forest, heritage, life, modern, road, suburbia

    We walk on the face of an experimental sundial. We walk with the gnomon's shadow, which is thrown by the light of partial understanding into the future. The tiger's absence is in that shadow. A very thought provoking write.9 (Report)Reply

    Nature and endangered animals must not be sacrificed
    in the name of development.
    Tiger is at the top of the food chain in all ecosystem it
    lives in. As such, it keeps populations of some animals
    in check. TIgers must therefore be protected.
    Thank you for this beautiful offering.
    Brilliantly penned.
    Congratulations !

    Nature and man's, many times destructive, progress don't mix very well.
    You have made a beautiful presentation of this in your poem that really is a call to attention
    and equilibrium, which so often is forgotten. Merited poem of the day. Congratulations!

    Crystal clear description about this loveliest poem of a greatest change in the forest-history, like in many countries in the world, less green, more concrete is shown. Quo vadis the tigers?
