Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Before it is too late….

Mother earth asphyxiates

held captive in her own home

chained to the callous attitude of man

crumbling under the debris of plastic

gasping for a breath of fresh air

her shrunken and wrinkled beauty

a glaring testimony ,

to her ailing symptoms.

Its time we hear her cries ,

heal her body and revive her soul,

before she succumbs,

annihilating life!

    Radhika, a powerful message sent on how we abuse Mother earth with our greed and something that will take years to heal, the destruction of planets and your poetry addresses the anger, sorrow and sorry fate we live in.

      Vishal, I feel all these emotions raging within me when I see the indifference in man’s behaviour towards the planet. I wonder what kind of a place will we leave behind for our kids ?

    True words of reality, Radhika and the picture was so apt with your lovely poem. Yes she is dying and her soul is crying we as humans who have cut her to pieces must put her back or she will destroy us in the near future.

    So sad and true. But you know Radhika Mother Nature cries more for us, her lost children. She has survived 4 billion years and shall survive another many billions. If we don’t learn we may vanish one day 😌

    The ancients called the Earth the mother of humankind. Your poem captures how badly humankind is treating her. If we do not change, Earth will be our mother no more, and this should be a warning to us all.

      Absolutely Tom. Even in Hinduism Earth is revered as our mother. It’s time we show her our love and respect and heal the wounds we have inflicted on her.
