Mother Earth, Happy Birthday! - Poem by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
I dreamt of Mother Earth.
She looked so incredibly vast,
So radiant, wearing a colourful attire,
Shinning with lustrous jewellery.
In front of Mother Earth,
I looked like a tiny mustard seed,
I could not open my eyes fully,
She was too bright for my naked eyes.
Yet, I managed to mutter,
In a voice hardly audible,
"Happy Birthday, Mother Earth"!
Mother Earth smiled and
Nodded with a benign expression!
She looked at me with such kind,
Compassionate expression that
I could have melted like an ice cream!
I managed to ask her:
" Have you any message for us, Mother Earth? "
In soft, mellifluous voice,
As if she is singing a song,
She said: "Yes, Of course"!
All of you are my children, I love you all!
All of you will come back into my arms.
I do not want to know which country you belong to
Or which religion you practise;
I also don't need to know whether you are black or white!
All of you are equal to me!
All you need to do is
‘Let me be'
‘Let you be'!
