soulful heart


Essential Compound - Poem by soulful heart

Oh! What art thou, Water?
Being colourless, odourless, shapeless
Yet act as- mirror, stink dump, bound mass.

Oh! What is thy abode?
In blood, clouds, oceans
Yet you- clot, bolt, drown.

Oh! Why thy presence is bliss?
As you nurture, quench, replenish
Yet you- choke, devour, bloat.

Oh! How benevolent thou art?
Evoking breathing air, life, beauty
Yet cause- icy chill, disease, slimy moss.

Oh! Lest thou hold thy fury!
As floods, tsunami, hurricane
Yet calmly splash, ebb, subside.

Oh! If thou wert not invoked
There be no earth, rivers, cells
Yet exist binding, flowing, cleaving.

    Each thing in Nature has a bright as well as grey side. Water the elixir of life is no exception! It can nurture, foster, sustain and replenish life and also drown, devour, choke and bloat! Beautiful poem on the contradictions of things! (Report)Reply
