A to Z Challenge 2022 – Nature and I
You can read my earlier posts of the challenge here.
Nature’s moods define irised emotions, as she chooses from an ever-changing palette of shades and textures. Her aesthetic artistry beholds the eyes, with enchanting rapture. She exhibits a wide array of colors and contrasts.
Dreamy dawn’s diffused crimson, to dusk’s bold streaks of lavender and amethyst
azure blue expanse in conversation with white billowy nimbus
broody overcast sky burdened with dark charcoal clouds
dry arid earthy brown to the lush green forest canopy
serene aqua waters subdued by the tempestuous grey ire of the undulating waves
spirited tones of spring to monochrome of winter
lambent twinkling stars gleaming in the bosom of the velvety black yonder
the slumberous water shimmering under the glowing silver radiance of the moonlight
From vibrant to muted tints, nature encompasses a motley of chromatic hues in her persona. Seasonal changes, alter her composition and colors, yet their confluence paints a captivating mural of the landscape. She is in complete harmony in all her avatars.
Shouldn’t the same be true for us as well? We are all of different skin tones, belonging to distinct cultures, having varied personalities. So why is it that we engage in discrimination against fellow beings? Isn’t it time for us to practice universal brotherhood as one mankind?
Different strokes and colors
cohabit under the infinite sky
one red flows through our bodies,
each breath and heartbeat resonating
a similar emotional tinge.
They bask under the sole yellow sunshine
glow under the radiance of the same moonlight.
Sounds of laughter and the tears of pain, are alike
hunger pangs and prayers are of identical hue.
When mankind is of one color,
then why the differences?
