Nature | World Environment Day | Poetry

As I sit by the window and watch the rain,

And the radio in the background gives me the news of the day,

I hear of floods, cyclones, earthquakes and hurricanes,

And I wish…we could hear what the earth has to say.

*

In the midst of the storm, there comes a moment

Which perhaps we don’t acknowledge otherwise.

Can we not see that the nature is a formidable opponent?

I wish…we would stop telling ourselves lies.

*

Not just elements of our world, they are our life’s essence,

Water, fire, earth and air.

History has provided us with so many lessons,

And I wish…. that we come together and give a care.
