Four Liners--21--30

Rating: 5.0

21 The Story of River Vaigai

Demon friend Gundodhara at Shiva-Meenakshi's divine wedding
Devoured excess feast emptying Madurai's all waters.Feeling
Still unquenched he needed more water.Gundodhara as asked by Shiva
Opened Shiva's few locks.There! Vaigai from Ganga waters for Gundodhara! !

22 Bird Language

Their non-verbal communication is wonderful
Bound to body gestures and sensory sounds is
Their unity in all aspects of their life. That it's
Easy for man too to talk to birds is more wonderful

23 Bamboo

Grown through vegetative propagation, culms, rhizomes and seeds
Growing in warm, humid environs bamboo is all for our livelihood
Soil service to scaffoldings through social, domestic, medical etc needs
Bamboo stands great. Greater is as mythical flute in Lord Krishna's hands

24 Mosquitoes

It is the female mosquitoes that buzz around our head
Scenting the carbon dioxide to suck our blood while
The male ones rest on flowers for the honey with no heed
To save their sweet hearts from getting swatted by us to death

25 Nishagandhi

Her fragrant white star-like flowers are large enough to entice
Bats and moths like her nocturnal blooming that they help her pollinated
Enjoying herself her nocturnal life this night flower at dawn dies
Queen of the night she is unique like a goddess who is celebrated

26 Clay

A stiff, sticky fine-grained earth very hard to walk on when wet
But wet clay can be moulded to make bricks, pottery, and ceramics
Clay houses in the past and brick houses in the present best built
While in those houses Lord Ganesh also is of clay with blessing dynamics

27 Fire

Fire is there in nature from the time of primeval man
A natural reaction of oxygen and a source of fuel... fire is set
There's no human life without fire as cooking is a must for man
Holy fire to crematorial fire for many needs fire's used the most

28 Monkey

Admired for your mischievous playfulness; but feared
When it levels up to too much of hassling; yet worshipped
As Lord Hanuman. Those three wise monkeys, Gandhiji much adored
Portraying 'See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil'.. much praised

29 Pumpkin

You're unique in size and quality. Ranked top in wider space
Is your taste and utility. Your huge medicinal and culinary uses
That worldwide is welcomed is of great value. Not less
To add all the kids' rhymes, songs and stories to your grace

30 Meteor

Comets or asteroids entering Earth's atmosphere
Of air friction as they get burnt up totally
Let a streak of light which's known as Meteors
A fleeting glimpse of a delightful light from our land sphere
