The Ride Through the Forest

Published April 22, 2017 by tapasmi

Ochre sky and warming rays

Thawing into the dense haze

Stretched as far as eyes can see

Lies mesmerizing forestry

Bathed in sunlight, shielded faces

Scent of leaves the air traces

Swaying in the gypsy ride

Eyes darting from side to side

The cemented road, in some time

Melts into raw path of compact grime

Our voices hush as we explore

The abundance of nature galore

Trees extending up into the sky

With hives of bees scattered high

Nails of bears carved onto the trunks

Ripping the combs into syrupy chunks

Dappled light under the leafy awning

Sandy hills of termites spawning

Monkeys grooming as they gibber

Birds curled on twigs while they chipper

Foliage rustling by whistling wind

The trail we travelled slowly thinned

Rolling away from the verdure

Into a breath-taking moor

A savannah carpeted with grass

Strands with hue of faded brass

The wheaty threads cast on the lea

Dry, yet filled with life and felt so free

For miles across, their bewitching dance

Left me enchanted by nature’s trance.

Koalas

Published March 16, 2016 by tapasmi

The fluffy little grey faunae

Australia- originates from there

The little Aussie wonders

Incorrectly named ‘koala bear’.

 

Yes, it is the sweet Koala

With fur so soft and grey

They are gentle herbivores

Eucalyptus their only prey.

 

Eyes so warm and inky

A bulky and black nose

And ears large as tea plates

With sharp nails on the toes.

 

Soft and gentle they may seem

And indeed; they’re not scary

But they are in the wild after all

So to interfere you must be wary.

 

Leave them space to themselves

Admire them from quite afar

Or they’ll slash at you with their teeth

Not their apparent soft avatar!

 

They eat so much eucalyptus

They are perfumed with its oil

The sleep for about 20 hours

About 4 hours of eating toil.

 

Koala mums too have pouches

To contain joeys- the little ones

No bigger than a jelly bean

And for round a decade grow the sons.

 

So next time you spy a picture

That makes you exclaim “Awww!”

Keep in mind these curious facts

And be cautious of the claw!

A Birdie On The Rooftop

Goodbye!

It was a simply evening with

autumn breeze whistling by

I was strolling on the rooftop

When a little bird I did spy.

 

It was a dainty little thing

Perched atop a hedge

It didn’t shrink away

Rather teetered closer to the edge.

 

With genial amusement

I looked down at the fledgling

And quite nonchalantly near

my feet hopped the nestling.

 

How bonny was the chick

Red beaked and chubby

Looking up with inky eyes

Chirping, happy, and tubby.

 

In the distance came a chirp

Calling the birdie to its nest

With a cheeky glance at me

It flew back home to rest.

Winter Flowers

Published December 29, 2015 by tapasmi

 

While the icy wind bites my skin

And the green leaves fade grey

Amongst the lifeless branches

A pop of hues does sway.

 

It strikes up from  the earthen pot

Where lay the trees’ shed leaves

A strong burst of joy does dwell

A lovely sight making time freeze.

 

Red, yellow, and pink dahlias

Intricacy, vibrance, and hue

Smashing paast mundane chill

A blessing bright and new.

 

Every petal the shape of morning dew

Filled in with rainbowy pigment

Flared out like rays of the sun

Held by the emeral ligament.

 

Oh the divine creation: a flower

Rising up in the season of snow

A stunning  bud striking dull gales

Oh winter flower, you dazzle me so.

Extinction

Some animals that I know of

Are today nowhere to be found

Like the dinosaur and the dodo

Neither any longer tread this ground.

There are many more such creatures

Like the Woolly Mammoth or Steller Sea Crow

Or the majestic Sabre-toothed tiger

Or  even the Penguin Great Ark now.

Now to an eager mind like your

The question is probable to arise

Where have all these animals gone?

What made them all bid goodbye?

I’m sorry to tell you this my friend

But mankind is the real cause

We have chopped off trees and poached them

We sold their bones, teeth, and claws.

And slowly all these species had

No way to any longer survive

And the same is endangering more

So we must change and realise!

How Mankind Changed Our Earth

Published October 18, 2015 by tapasmi

kteerhhgrewrgm,

Dear mankind, long before your birth

Such was the beauty of our Mother Earth

When dense leaves bore succulent fruit

When fauna was melodious, bright, astute.

When rippling water streamed and poured.

The zestful world left unexplored

The air mixed with purity and hope

Ecstasy and colour at every scope.

But then along you came, oh mankind

The grace that we once could find

Vanished, because of your sly ploy

The exquisiteness you did destroy

Due to deforestation, poaching and smoke

The delicate symmetry you had broke

All life having reached fatality, death

For this grace to be gutted you set/

The dim future that we foretold

Is now our present, so we must be bold

And heal our mother, rather than kill

We’ll find the way if we find the will.

Mother Nature

duh

When I wake up in the morning bright

I push out all wordly thoughts from my mind

I first close my eyelids shut once more

To hear the birds outside chime.

I illuminate myself with warm sunlight

I breathe the fresh and springy air

Hear the chirrup from the lush greenery

Dew on every glass blade, clouds fluffed and fair.

I remember all my memories with nature

Be it the rippling of waves beneath my feet

Or the gravelly, shelled soil of the beach

Or the scent of pine down the street.

I then think of how pollution destroyed

These pleasures, and weakened Mother Earth

She filled our lives with grace and beauty

And to our dullness, added mirth.
