Tall trees…

A photograph by Savvy Raj @France

Umpteen number of years gone by
Though I lost the count,
Nature got it etched on my trunk.
I can’t remember when I was a seed or sapling.
Today I stand tall being a witness to the passing seasons.
I wither and flourish,
With each passing year
My branches multiply tall and wide.
Though my hands try to reach the passing clouds…

My roots stand firmly grounded on the earth.
My secret of longevity
I adapt to Nature
Withering in Autumn
Clad in the snow in Winter
Rising to be alive with Rains
Flourishing in Spring.
Though I may look barren at times
My creeper friends cloth me in green
Till my canopy is filled with greens.
To nurture and nourish withstanding Time.

I am truly happy to share the above verses for this is one of my mother’s impromptu poems written in a flow, just a while ago, after I shared the above photo of a tree that I was drawn to capture with her.

Tall trees that seem to touch the sky …
devoid of leaves and blue skies with silver puffs of clouds floating by…

I am currently in France and while sitting in a bus stand admiring a tree at a distance, I decided to take this photo as I found myself drawn to capturing the vision of the sky from the ground below through the branches as a canopy of sorts.

Every manifestation of life is beautiful and significant in its own way. We often assume that a tree devoid of leaves is barren and ignore it. Yet there is so much to see and learn, respect & reflect from it.

I loved the above poem by her for many reasons one of which is because, it reflects the wisdom of nature, that flows through us all maintaining balance and sustaining us in life and living.

Virtual Illusions

Caught hook line and sinker

Wherever we go

Wherever we are

The web follows us

Connectivity is a boon and bane

For there is always the peril

Of being caught up deeply without knowing.

Minutes melt into hours

Before you free yourself from its clutches.

In its tempting interactions..

Unaware are many, of its effects

On the health of humanity

Radiation, fatigue and syndromes

Affected can’t put down their phones

As people seems helpless without it.

It’s time to draw a line

To regulate time spent on the net.

To be aware of the dangers of high speed wi fi connections.



Distance and shield from harmful (Emr) radiations where ever and whenever possible.

Switch off phones at night.

Switch off phones at night.
You will find yourself regenerating.

And your wellbeing will improve.

Make sure to spend time out in the real world.

Before the web snatches all your time.

Ablaze

Forests on fire…


The raging fire sets all ablaze.
Seething through all of Amazon
Gutting the lush green dense forests
Surging fumes seen from space.


Rainforests of Amazon are burning away
Home to so many indigenous tribes
Precious flora and fauna
Turning to ashes in natures fury.


While the blame game begins
On who started the fire
The glaring truth is evident
For the world  to see…


Rampant deforestation and logging
Burning lands, leaving dark smoky skies.      Days have turned to hazy nights
All caused by callous human hands



Pray for nature from where you are
Help it return to balance.
Rally for climate plans and sustain life
Combat deforestation across the world.


Do your bit today, every bit matters
For the planets lungs are at stake
Care, Educate,Protect Support 
It makes a world of difference!

No it’s not the Red Planet it’s our Earth
It’s not burning  but being burned.



The  largest rainforest “Amazon” is all ablaze! 
The planets lungs are gasping to breathe !

Buy less paper  conserve wood.
Help protect the forests of the world!
