ROUGH AND GENTLE!

Image result for Images for Rough and gentle waves

What a fine design and shape
That no man on earth can make
Raise, recede and gallop fast
A joy to young and old at little cost!

At times gentle, sometimes rough
As in life make my feet shaky and tough
When gentle you sing like a cuckkoo
When rough you roar like a lion in frown
While gentle you fondle my feet in love
When rough you make me falter and tumble down!

I see your love for the moon in full
Yearn to reach her with all your skill
Fail to reach, back to your shell
Raise, raise again to reach but fail!

Yet leave the message loud and clear
To all those watch far and near
‘Let the world cease not efforts
Nor nurture low aim and sit in comforts! ‘

November 5th WORLD TSUNAMI DAY

Image result for world tsunami day"

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 !

RAINY DAYS!

Image result for pictures for rainy season"

Prompted by the weekly prompt of Blogging Meet here is prompted poem:
RAINY DAYS have made grand arrival! Yes the great gift of Nature alias God!
PAINY DAYS are these to many-going to schools and offices and outside home
With umbrellas failing to protect from rains heavy, Rain coat
Out of its place from the cupboard helps walking or driving two wheelers!
Getting cold and fever as a result of getting drenched in rain-a pain!
Even after the RAIN stops, drizzles continue through TREE LEAVES and branches!
RAIN essential for the world as the Saint Poet of Tamilnadu says in his Magnum Opus THIRUKKURAL written years two thousand and three hundred ago!:
Chapter Two
GLORY OF RAIN
11.
On rain, rests the world
Sure for its prosperity
Treat rain –nectar bold! (11)

12.
It helps grow great food
Sans water no agriculture
Quenches thirsty world! (12)

13.
Water all in sea
Helps not life on earth so well
Rain water gives glee! (13)

14.
Rain sustains the world
Makes the fertile land yield more
Sans farmers can’t mould! (14)
15.
By absence, rain destroys
Life, living, people and the world
By care it creates! (15)
16.
If rain fails to grace
The earth with its compassion
No grass you can trace! (16)
17.
Ocean becomes dry
When the sky bears not the clouds
People made to cry! (17)
18.
Rain – gift of nature
Whenever denied to the world
Bleak – nobles’ future! (18)
19.
When powerful rain fails
Noble charity gets failed
Nobles’ penance falls! (19)
20.
Sans water no life
When the Lord of Rain conspires
Virtue faces knife! (20)

“GREAT RAINS” GIFT OF NATURE/ GOD A HUMBLE PRAYER.

Image result for Images  for PRAYER FOR RAIN

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!

Image result for love a tree day 2019

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.

Ocean indeed is the Mother of the world who protects all
Spotlights the entire magnificence of the body of water tall
That makes our life possible on Earth! So many creatures live
In the ocean, one-quarter size of the earth is covered by ocean!

We all know how much ocean is important for civilization
Today rightly observed as “MOTHER OCEAN DAY”-for appreciation
Of keeping the ocean clean and neat and its coasts all along
To ensure sea breeze for health and happiness of the world -we belong!

Mother Ocean provides life and living for millions in the world
We owe it to ourselves to respect ocean- deemed MOTHER by all bold
In India-my holy Motherland we revere Mother as God-
Ocean as Mother! Let us enjoy this HOLY DAY!As Lord!
