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

Off Pitch!

Image credit- Stefan Keller – Pixabay

Serenades of the universe resonated in harmony

the flora and fauna played in perfect cadence

sublime melody of peace wafted across

composing an ambiance of tranquility.

 

Entered man, stealing the conductor’s baton

altering the configuration of the arrangement

the reverberations goes askew

the din deafens the quietude of nature.

 

O divine mother, I ask for forgiveness,

I bow down to thee with reverence

help man tune his offbeat keys

to restore the rhythm of the cosmic orchestra.

 

In response to Sadje’s What do you see #37

      Thanks Benjamin. It’s only man who is singing off pitch ( and creating a discord) in nature’s orchestra which is in perfect harmony.

    Love the weaving of words with the depth in each word coming out beautifully. Human kind has for its selfishness disturbed the peace of the nature. A prayer apt for forgiveness.

      When every other being can co exist in perfect harmony, why does man always behave in a selfish manner?

        Money has taken over I believe which has increased the level of selfishness. Like The Little Prince has the businessman who counted and collected stars just to earn more. I guess.
