wind, now soothing against my face

and then harsh against my skin

flowers, now blooming inviting honey bees

and then leaving life, petals dried & dull

the soil, fertile, rich now

and then dry, bringing a drought

butterflies, now sleeping in cocoons

and then flapping those wings in a hurry

mountains, wearing the white sheet of snow

and then naked, letting the rivers to flow

trees, standing in silence patiently

and then swaying to the ruthlessness of the storm

rain, now bringing merriment to lives

and then voilent, turning into floods devastating

waves, bringing passion to the beach

and then showing their rage of tsunami

I wonder, so Curious I am

of the two faces of the mother nature

someone help me understand

be kind to feed my inquisitiveness

which is real and what’s pretending to be real

is it Life – the ultimate truth of our existence


is it Death – that holds the key

      1. I always love to read soulful poetry. Your poem reminded me of the poem written by me titled as ‘Reflect Upon Youself’. I felt connected to it….God bless

      1. It was the most considered and thoughtful reply that I have ever made to a post, so I’m glad you liked it. Anything that makes someone think is good in my book. 🙂
        But I should also say – well done for creating something so magical and lovely. Thank you very much. (swift bow)
