The Honey Pond. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

In the heaven there a stream of honey
That flows every where in planets
The flies can't drink the honey
The birds flies near but can't swim
There its aroma spreads in earth
Humans felt the presence of honey
Somewhere they it tried to trace
Someone passed away from worldly life
Got the elixir on his good deeds
His stomach was full but prayed in silence
May it spread to the earth for my fellows
Who are thirsty and hungry and in poverty
A pond was self formed with the honey
Not the common bee's honey, heaven'own
The people were eager to collect it
They were the selfish lot to grab it
The pots were many, people many
Some drowned in, someone swam across
The crowed was feeling tired enough
A poor man an aged old man
They confessed the guilt and prayed
May it take back otherwise we will perish
The pond was dried then and there.

    'Value of greed we have to pay is high....'

    GREED.. it is so extensively present in us, poor human beings, to be the sin that will lead to the destruction of Nature and even of ourselves...
