Environment 14 - The Angry Rains And The Pink Rose Poem by Geeta Radhakrishna Menon

Environment 14 - The Angry Rains And The Pink Rose

Rating: 4.7


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?

The story of a pink rose. The nature in its fury is not partial, and it would equally destroy its own creation, unlike man. And nature knows, there cannot be renewal without destruction. One pink rose dies, but gives way to many new. A poem very well writ. You might like to read my poem The Flood.

Nature is blind, sometimes kind sometimes unkind. We all are helpless before the nature. Congrats! A nice selection as member's poem of the day.

A beautiful thought provoking poem... if man can be angry and quarrelsome to end in a wary disaster why not the rain too, or the Nature in general...to avoid such destruction including the innocent Rose's death for no reason of hers we should think and think how high we should be eco friendly, how high we should be vigil, how high every human should be friendly with another human..all in account to put out Nature's fury....very much inspiring Geeta...God bless you

It is all man's doing. The more you destroy the delicate Eco-system the more will be the nature's fury. Thanks again for this thought provoking poem and Congrats for its selection as Poem of the Day.

Such a touching poem, giving our hearts an understanding of feeling for even the smallest of things. When we experience loss of anything beautiful, no matter how small, it is a true sadness.
