Stupid I - Poem by Neela Nath Das

My stupid I,
do not know,
the sight of the
falling snow.
My stupid I,
didn't see,
the depth of,
unexplored sea.
My stupid I,
never watch,
how the honey-bees,
do flowers touch!
My stupid I,
do always kill,
the busy ants,
doing their drill.
My stupid I,
can never stand,
to enjoy the sky,
and beautiful land.
Now, my stupid I,
want to feel all,
she missed before,
Oh! Nature's call!

    Please don't ever tell lies to us, oh great lover of nature, you do not succeed here in proving that you can be that practice you see in a moment, much ahead and around than the present day idiots would ever, in their entire life.
    Thanks for the lovely tiny breed, a marvel of the art of poetry from you Sir.
    Missing you in this PH brotherhood over the months.

    hey! Stupid U!

    perhaps you were busy with OTHER things? ?

    tell us about Smart Me. i'm sure there must be SOMETHING to tell there.

    One reason i enjoy sights of Nature is probably because one often does not have to go far
    OR spend money (or much money) to find and view a spider's web, a wispy cloud, a swallow swooping,
    or a flower budding.

    Lovely poem.....10

    It is equally important
    To present it instant
    And come out
    Clean without fall out

    God has created the nature so beautifully it amazes us if we observe it. The sky, the landscape, the rivers and seas, the animal kingdom everything is so perfect and awe-inspiring. But unfortunately sometimes we have no time to take a good look at it and appreciate its beauty. I enjoyed reading your beautiful write (Report) Reply

    We are all guilty of not observing the beauties of nature around us, because we are so preoccupied with our daily lives of hustle and bustle. But at least we poets recognize this and are aware of nature even if we dont always take the time to look. We should take note of your lovely poem Nil. (Report) Reply

    My dear Rachel, so sweet is your comment. I'm also among them, who ignore nature's beauty.I feel sometimes, now-a-days I forget to watch sparrows and their nestlings, the wild flowers which I used to see in my childhood days are meaningless to me now.So, I penned this poem. Thanks a lot for your wise comment. (Report) Reply

    Yes. So often we miss the Pure, Call of Nature and then feel for it. But for Heaven's sake don't you name your self stupid.For we know you are a true great poet.
    Thanks and best wishes,
