Spare Us - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

It blinded me with almost brightness
There was nothing to suggest in its greatness
It was unique phenomenon and experience
It had clear message with its variance

The sky thundered with loud explosion
As if bombs were exploding with implosions
No sound can be heard but its impact felt
It was heating severely below the belt

I could guess some thing unnatural was in offing
May be in the form of some natural disasters
May be sky was to generate heavy radiation
Scorching heat to burn everything with suffocation

What was the indication of bright flash?
Was it the panic signal sent with rush?
There was use beating round the bush
One had to move fast with quick push

It reminded me of the warning and forecast
World was on the brink of disaster and extinction
No one can save it from the fury of the nature
Can this really happen with mankind In future?

Rivers in spate were at dangerous with current flow
Sea was raising its present level as if to swallow
Earth was cracking to daze everything to ground
I could hear the loud bang in bright flash with big sound

My cot was shaking with full vibration
I was in deep sleep with no sign of life as an indication
It was shout from all over that it is severe earth quake
Every one rushed to the open ground very quick(ly)

I was bolted from out side as others had made the way
Many jumped from high rise building without any say
Earth was shaking with vibration to destroy in seconds
I shouted for help but none could come including friends

It was spell of complete disaster with His approval
It had spell bound devastating effect on its arrival
Nothing was going right as it had played its role
Cry deaths and almost dead peace from soul


Many might have experienced such rude shock
It is sure that nothing can remain solid as rock
It has to fast disintegrate as never existed before
It is basic fact that has come to the fore

It is awakening call and truce signal from nature
All out efforts to be nature friendly and to secure
Possible alignment with nature and its environment
Some concrete move to prepare and seize the moments

Nature itself is not permanent in nature
It has so much to offers us for future
We may be playing with our own fate
Still nothing can be considered as early or late
