My Coral Island Poem by Bharati Nayak

My Coral Island

Rating: 5.0


Where cool breeze blows
Dancing springs break
On the heart of stony rocks
Soothing music serenades
On the distant horizon
Large waves of the sea
Break at the feet of long sea shore
A lone mango tree
Finds reflections
In the stillness of cool pond
Counting the blooms
On its branches
And the seasons passed with cuckoos.

Inevitable
The mango tree
Sheds its yellow leaves
Every season
Before becoming green
With the new
Blossoms appear anew
Holding promises
For the basketful of fruits
That she will gift
To the travelers
Resting under its shade.

It's only in the last lines you refer to a human presence. Otherwise natural things go through their existence just as they have for countless eons. This poem celebrates nature for its own sake until the travelers savor the mango fruit at the end. I hope they fully appreciate the sweet wonder of the world they inhabit. Your poem beautifully and memorably conveys such gratitude.

Beautiful depiction of coral island with the mango tree bearing fruits to offer the travellers and with the cookos to provide songs for their pleasure. Wonderful imagery. Any one will appreciate this poem for its sweetness. Thank u dear Bharati madam for posting this lovely poem.

How the mango tree fulfills its mission of making others happy by offering its fruits.... an indirect hint that we should also produce fruits, if our existence has to be meaningful. The mango tree is set in an idyllic back ground...! A beautiful image!
