Nature indeed is nice and kind,-God’s manifestation quite sure
All living beings-humans and animals, hills and dales, seas and lakes
Meant for providing well being and safe living simple and pure
Yet when humans stray into wrong ways and means-nature punishes!
Sea waves are pleasant to see and play for the young and old in world
But when turn ferocious – oh! my Lord! eat away many on the shore.
Giant waves assume the name TSUNAMI and causes havoc absolute,
Today November Fifth was World Tsunami Day; Tsunamis though rare
Can be extremely deadly. In the past one hundred years, more than
Two lakhs sixty thousand people have perished in fifty eight tsunamis.
Four Thousand six hundred deaths a disaster, worst in any natural hazard.
Tsunamis know no borders, international cooperation needed for reduction.
Fifth November World Tsunami Awareness Day; chosen from a true story
From Japan: “Inamura-no-hi”, means the “burning of the rice sheaves”.
During earthquake more than a century and half ago, a farmer saw the tide
Receding, a sign of a looming tsunami. He set fire to his harvested rice
To warn villagers, who fled to high ground. later, he helped his community
Build back better to withstand future shocks, constructing an embankment
And planting trees as a tsunami buffer. Yes hence today it is !

Middle of JUNE is gone-gone sans rains-my God or Nature Why this punishment
To me a citizen of Chennai. I know I have not been good to any,
I do not love all, serve all-though I say help ever hurt never, I follow not strict
I deserve to be denied of Thy grace Lord Varuna- but not my kith and kin here!
By now year after year we use to get the grace of Rain God –and blessed
With RAIN- this year not till now!. Prayers are on seeking your grace
Every nook and corner- Be kind enough to bring in RAIN to this starved city
Of Chennai. For drinking water and other purposes we do not get water enough.
We pay heavily and exorbitantly for the little water, to those who help us
We can only pray, beg you to bring us rains and do rain water harvesting!
Oh! Lord Varuna-Rain God- kindly lend us your ears and bless us with rain
May all living beings humans and animals, trees and plants get their thirst quenched!
In the light of the increasing global warning- no solution other than TREES
To find out more and more space for the ever increasing human population
Trees are cut, agricultural lands converted into colonies-my God!
Solution lies in the hands of the humans to LOVE and PLANT trees everywhere!
May sixteenth TODAY honors National Love a Tree Day, trees are celebrated
Recognized for the wonderful gift that trees are to us. this Day is in middle
Of Garden for Wildlife Month. trees tend to be long-lived for hundreds of years
Some trees live for several thousand years as Madras Adayar AALAMARAM is!
The tallest known tree is three hundred and seventy nine feet high-a wonder
Trees provide more than just beautiful landscapes and a shady canopy in summer
Play a significant role in reducing erosion and moderating the climate and give
Oxygen. Large carbon stored in their tissues- removing carbon dioxide from earth.
