Scenery Medley Contrasts! - Poem by s.zaynab kamoonpuri

Mushrooms and meadows
Sunshine and shadows

Gentle ripples on the calm river
Foaming rapids in white water

The jungle echoes in the semi-darkness
while daylight creepy-crawlies clear the mess.

Peasants toiling and pheasants scratching
as I spy a cricket somersaulting

The cactus the desert's prickly femme-fatale
elsewhere a lone leaf floats in the canal

Prairie dogs go popping
while hares go hopping
and ladies go shopping

Swans have formed a V-line
The flora too is divine
as bees swarm in bee-line.

Seista seizes birdlovers too
Thus they miss out on the hoopoe's song
For the hoopoe, it does not sing on cue
since a bird may sing anytime to woo.

What a medley eh of scenery
Murky eve and dawning greenery

Ah, wherever you go nature's so panoramic
While we make pictures God made what's picturesque!

    Page words go popping
    while poems go hopping
    and readers go shopping

    Insights have formed a V-line
    The feelings too are divine
    as rhythms swarm in wine.

    Screen seizes virtual lovers too
    Thus they miss out on the window's song
    for the window, it does not sing on cue
    since the wind anytime may it sing to woo.
