Fiery Heat!

Fiery heat casts a spell

on the dreary summer noon

green grass withers a tan,

the branches stand still,

water bodies parched to death,

birds scurry to quench their thirst,

the cicada’s trill, echoes anguish

nature lies defeated,

devoid of life

insipid, motionless

burning under the raging sun!

      Oh yes Akhila, that was really bad. Only hope that man learns his lessons from such calamities before it happens again.

        Yeah.. but sometimes I feel nature is trying for some balance..otherwise why all these should happen to destroy the life on earth?

        While I agree with you that nature does a balancing act from time to time, these sort of calamities have increased in the recent past due to environmental imbalance created by man.

    True and nature lies shedding its leaves in the scorching heat of the sun and even the water too becoming parched. Lovely poem, Radhika.

    Well penned, R! The lack of forest cover/trees makes it even more unbearable, and I can only pity the poor animals/birds ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      That’s true Kunal. But inspite of all the awareness, even today the trees are being cut in the name of development which is criminal.

    This was the perfect description of the weather I am experiencing where I live. We havenโ€™t any rain for awhile, and the farmers are getting worried.

    Great articulation. The summer heat is also a part of the annual regeneration cycle. Of course, human beings are conspiring to make it worse.

      Thanks Ankur. I agree, man is a key factor in causing the summer heat to aggravate year after year.
