Elegant Embrace - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Wow! This is elegant embrace,
Elegant embrace we feel and see,
He has escorted through his arms,
Feeding cattle beside highway,
He feels smiley attitude,
He has created nature to nourish,
Actually he nourishes all,
Giving his Divine Nectar
He empowers us at each moment,
From dawn to dusk cows graze,
Green grass is empowered by sun-rays,
Soil is fertile and dusk is duty,
All are calm and happy to return,
But they need to graze for a while,
Blowing horn vehicles move,
But shaking horns they still graze,
Thankful to God they are and we are,
Elegant beauty embraces time!

They do not bother for the obstacles,
Because they know that they are safe,
In the arm of God, they are warm,
War cannot affect their lives,
Summer cannot burn them at all,
Winter cannot give more cold to them,
They have trust on only one God,
Just they are playing in father's lap,
Nature obeying God's command
She has preserved grass at all seasons,
Cattle are happy and very calm,
Under the umbrella of God
They are safe to graze adoring green,
Dusk says them goodbye singing a song,
Hearing that song of pleasant love,
Cattle are now ready to return home!

    This is full of love of nature and domestic animals which are so much a part of our lives and environment. Michael Walker, our fellow poet took inspiration from this beautiful poem and composed an equally captivating poetic gem. His poem has directed me to work of great beauty. Thanks, Kumarmani ji.

    The serenity and tranquility emanating from simply observing these passive animals, wonderfully described in this poem: it is a reminder for all human beings to live a life as serene as them, to slow the pace of life, to meditate, to connect to our inner being; and ultimately, to find peace, compassion, empathy, and love. Thank you for this poem, Sir. (Report)Reply

    This poem of acute observation reminds me of seeing cows grazing in the fields between my city and Palmerston North. I felt compassion for them. They have to sleep in the open, no shelter at night. Their only day-time activity is eating grass. They lack the attractive things of our life. But you take a different approach to these animals. Tremendous. (Report)Reply

    I see before my eyes the happy herd of cattle grazing even after the fall of dusk! They have no nagging thoughts. They are happy if their stomachs are filled and God gives them fresh green grass and beautiful meadows to graze freely! A nice poem with a nice photograph!

    Brilliant write,
    it occurs to me that all species other than humans are relatively free from the self,
    not so self possessed, they leave it to nature to take care of a lot of things unlike humans
    and so are closer to God/Nature.
