Environment 4 - The Deer Park Environment - Poem by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon

A park is a place that thrills,
An environment that delights,
A place that springs surprises,
An atmosphere that rejuvenates.

As I walk and walk through the Deer park,
An exotic place with many tall, tall trees,
An area full of pretty, pretty flowers,
A place to relax, enjoy and bask.

Fine thoughts enter my mind,
Frilled with, silky, lacy, of romantic kind,
Fantastic creation of God's benign hand,
Fills my heart with a joyous pound.

Environment creates joyful revelation,
Enabling the body-mind's surreal resurgence,
Elevating the mind to a higher goal of introspection,
Engrossed I am now in nature's surveillance.

Topic(s) of this poem: environment, nature

    Matchless portrayal of nature's beauty in and around Deer Park in Delhi brings it alive before the eyes of the reader. Your walk through the park and the intense observation put into this poem is immaculate. Thanks a lot, Geeta ji.

    I relate, Geeta, to the gifts, the enjoyment, in a park. The one that has been the place where many of my poems have been birthed is not exotic, but it’s just two blocks from my house. With all its trees, including a predominance of tall elms, the birds which home and linger there, the shadows created as sunlight filters through, it’s been a great place for me. -Glen (Report)Reply

    Geeta Radhakrishna Menon(4/22/2018 1:16:00 AM)

    Thanks Glen. I certainly agree with the feeling expressed here that when you are standing amidst trees, it is a wonderful feeling.
