Written In Native Soil

Poem by AISWARYA T ANISH

Which is your favorite place on Earth? Hears mine........

The sun promised a charming dawn every dusk,
And went off for a nap in his husk
And lilies never forget to bloom,
Driving away numerous gloom
I see my hometown, standing proudly
Shielded by the sea and the lake, so lovely
Words deny painting her beauty
Paints are scanty to colour her liveliness
God’s own hand sewn stunning dress
Calmness prevails, peace rules
Striking tiaras, green hues

Breezes fan her, beauty shines
Waters wash her, sunshine dries,
When I breathe in the salty air,
I hear the winds chant hymns, everyone care
The sun kisses the sea, the moon’s seen
A synonym of Juno’s mien…
Lying on a glowing bed, an infinite sea
Stars keep company, an urge to live free

I bike down the road,
It takes me on its own accord.
The winds tickling my face, the waves coil
I lay down on the shiny black soil
Waves splashing on my feet, sun on my face
Time forgets to keep its pace
Good natured people, with hearts of gold,
I see them do their afternoon chores

If ever, the big boys in heaven,
Send a shooting star, across the skies,
What I’d wish is to
Keep my hometown the way she is
This is where my heart lies
Hometown……

    It's difficult to believe a twelve-year old has this level of vocabulary and general knowledge, but it is very beautiful, I shan't judge the poet, only the poem, and the poem is gloriously beautiful(Report)Reply

    Kerala with all its natural landscape and backwaters is a heaven on this earth.
    The hometown is always the best place for one who belongs to that native soil.
    Even a plant likes its mother soil, not to speak of a human being in this regard.
    A beautiful poem is well composed.(Report)Reply

    A lovely tribute to your hometown
    A pictursqe landscape painted well
    With colours glowing and shining
    The final touch of the shooting star
    Does highlight your creative talent
    That I hope many more to flow from you!
