The Mother Nature - Poem by Surayya Abbas

In a cool winter evening
Sitting by the fireplace
Looking at the rainy shower
My heart dampened
With condensed drops of moisture
Travelling on the window
Like shiny diamond grains
Trying to cut the glass off
They were reflecting light
Like twinkling tears once I saw
In my Mother's eyes.
Out there in the lawn
Ten white roses on a single branch
Were praising the pure water
And dancing in chorus
Rain! Rain! Rain!
I could feel their refreshing mood
Like fragrance of my childhood.
My eyes filled with
Beauty of the Mother Nature!

    Beautiful theme. You combined your Mother and Mother Nature to celebrate dancing delight of our gift of life, water. Wonderful imagery throughout. 10 Krarin Anderson (Report)Reply

    Beautiful poetry. Mother Nature is a perennial source of bliss but engroosed in matter we are tormented and shattered.
