Environment 14 - The Angry Rains And The Pink Rose

I am a little pink Rose!
I bloomed to see
This beautiful world,
To enjoy the monsoon,
The cool touch of the rains,
The sweet dew drops on my petals,
The gleaming, shining white pearls,
The magical showers of the heaven!

But Alas! When the monsoon arrived,
The rains poured down in great anger,
The rains pounded the earth, trees and hills, without sympathy,
The rains just devoured the houses and people without any empathy!

What wrong have I done to be blown away by the fiery, rainy storm?
What sin have I committed to be torn and crushed into the deep earth?

    But, lo; time is unstoppable powerful character
    it brings the rainy day thru its chariot
    Oh! what a grimace figure the rainy days have
    what a giant sharp of its shedding
    what a misbehavior manner of it

    now whole the world is logged in its shedding tears
    and the pink roses have no scope to escape from its cruel clutch

    Pink roses here
    Pink roses there
    Pink roses everywhere
    to decorate the world beautifully

    The graceful face of these roses
    enlighten the whole universe
    more than neon lights

    Anger of destruction. Nature plays its part perfectly balancing every minute things, so let our brain learn to accept without being prejudice to our love the pink rose. We complain about things we love and like but nature has its own way of looking at things. Brilliantly penned. 10 on 10.

    A beautiful poem that vividly portrays
    the wonders of nature and how it can be destroyed
    by the wrath of one of the four elements; water.
    Beautifully crafted and well executed write.
    The imagery is superb!
