FRIEND WITH TREE Part 3

 

Tall Eucalyptus tree in a friendly voice asked me:
Have you seen me or come across me = you are welcome!
Said I happily and with a pride:” Oh! My dear friend
Have you forgotten me; I was with you for three years!

Nice tree asked me: I remember very faintly, please tell
Told I: Forty years ago in Ooty, we were together-fell
In love with each other- I liked your shape and size,
Healing power and wide use for all rich and poor- I praise!

I enjoyed your pleasing scent as I went for my morning walks
Office to home and home to office, to Elk Hill
Temple and back! Over my house you stood majestic
As guards to help me and my family-holistic!

Said the tree in a sad voice: Those days are gone gone
With the wind- you humans in inhuman manner -cut us all
To make homes for your needs; very few are left.

Said I in reply: Yes unfortunate it is;
Ungrateful my kith and kin have been- selfish;
Fail to see you healing our cold with oil made of leaves
You sacrifice yourselves to have my home built up
You produce sweet honey for the birds another
Creation of God- Almighty: You are food for many birds and insects.

Eucalyptus said in a grateful tone:
Happy I am to listen to the words of comforts
In praise of my clan and my use to you all!

SONG OF THE FROG!

Frog, a nice creation of the Lord Almighty
Small creature with a good purpose to serve lovely
Valued as food by humans, have cultural roles
Many in literature, symbolism –souls!

Nearly five thousand species many extinct
God’s ways are always inscrutable and distinct
When in rainy days and enjoying bath in water
Joyfully sings-ears special needed to enjoy!

Song of the frog sweet with its own rhyme and rhythm
Lying in the bed, silence all around in the night
Listening to the song is pleasant and great right
Pesticides and chemicals deform the frog  pity!

“CLEANLINESS IS GODLINESS”

To our holy Motherland- India tht is Bharath
From the days of our ancestors to this day on this earth
“Cleanliness is deemed to be next to Godliness”-not new
Gandhiji said the toilet must be as clean us pooja room!

Never cleanliness was made a political issue
Indian society conscious of our philosophy
Not to give credence to the political propaganda
We continue to be conscious of cleanliness!

Cleanliness of the body and mind, neighborhood nice
Leads to healthy living making our lives joyful spice
Healthy mind in a healthy body age old adage
All to ensure cleanliness all over- as a package!

SEPTEMBER 16th WORLD OZONE DAY

The Lord Almighty- great creator of the Universe
Provided us with what all we need out of NATURE –HIS GRACE
Air, Light, Gas, water, heat and all that give health and happiness
To make the world a heaven to live in peace and poise!

OZONE prevents the ultraviolet radiation
From reaching the ground, creating normal condition
For the life on the planet; protects us from the sun rays
And forms suitable light and warmth conditions of the world!

Depletion of the layer increases radiation
Causing skin cancer, cataract, and weakens immune system
Making us suffer the infectious diseases!
Today is WORLD OZONE DAY- let us think and protect Ozone!

August 09-International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples!

UN LOGO FOR THE DAY.

In the great creation of the Lord Almighty
Are the people all over the world quite mighty!
Spread over and spreading over each and all parts
Making their living useful to them and others smart!

Indigenous people moved and settled far off
Totally identifying with locals and serving
With all their best for mutual benefits giving
And taking culture of theirs to the land anew!

Peoples” is today – to recognize the achievements
And contributions they make to improve world issues
Such as environmental protection-great salutes!
