A different Spring

Birds are chirping
Flowers are blooming
Temperatures are rising
Yet it’s a different Spring!

Nature likes to give
Humans love nature to give
’tis now human turn to give
For a better chance to live!

Nature did not disappoint us
As usual what we want she gave us
Yet we face a threat very serious
Thanks to pandemic causing virus 😭

Empty are the streets
Save for protesters on the streets
Pity we can’t savor nature’s treats
Gone too are cheerful human greets ☹️

Here is the striking thing
’tis looking more like Arab Spring
Not the usual American spring
Yes it’s a different Spring! πŸ™

Story of Nature

Hey Nature
You are quite a painter!
For months you spread color
To enliven the decor;
From your infinite palette
Emerge creations to suit every palate;
When you paint a picture
’tis always pretty as a picture;
Then you whiten the canvas
And we ponder if it’s our loss;
We seek reason
You provide season;
Thence you start all over
We wait to behold that future!

In praise of Fall

Nature is putting on quite a show
When you look out you will surely know;
You see an explosion of color
It’s nature’s gift for you to savor!

This time of the year is known as fall
Many a tree will see its leaves fall;
Witness the magic before the leaves are shed
As they turn yellow , orange or red !

Behind the fall colors and the frisson
Is an important life lesson;
You can either choose to worry about the future
Or live in the present and spread joy like nature!
