For the first time in my life I saw an ocean when I visited Madras
In the year Nineteen Sixty one- after graduation-in my age twenty!
Amazed, surprised, delighted to see so much of water what your eyes
Could see and beyond! Surging tides coming to kiss your feet and recede!

Days are gone when the people walked and walked miles and miles
For health and other purposes – quite healthy with smiles!
I walked and walked eight plus eight miles a day to my college
A happy and healthy life I lead even today -great privilege!
Lo! What we see today when the Courts have to order
To control pollution here and there, sans any border.
Public transport to help -fifty travelling not to
Use fifty individual petrol, diesel vehicles!
Pity with love and affection beyond a level
Allow not children walk to schools two hundred meters
Away but drop in cars, scooters and bikes-no cycling
Resulting in obesity in young ones in teens!
Teenage Boys Are Much, Much Fatter Than They Were 40 Years Ago
Beyond the grills of my beautiful window
A lovely sight I get as the gift of wind!
A plant of two years with height of ten feet
Bows with respect to the God of wind quite neat!
East to West and West to East, South to North and
North to South –gentle movement supporting wind
Adding to the great pleasure of breeze sitting
On this good side of the grill and enjoying!
A beautiful crow just glides and lands on the
Tender green plant- plant obliging the crow
A space to perch and moving along wit the
Plant’s branches- the great creation of God!
My HAIKU POEMS “ ON ENVIRONMENT!”
Great asset we can create
In quest of nature
We shall all walk together
For a bright future!
Keep safe our manthra!
Trees great nature’s gift
To take care our prime duty
Lest we perish swift!
Birds and animals
Our kith and kin to take care
God saves universe!
Air nature’s present
Nature god’s fine creation
Cool air sure pleasant!
Pre-dawn- magic wand
That transforms earth into heaven
Sure makes man’s life grand!
A grand sight to see
Last rays of the dying Sun
Gives to joy a key!
Pure water and air
Nature’s gift to the mankind
Protect nice and fair!
9 Fail not to protect
Our Mother Environment
Lest no protection!
Students are taught in their schools
Ever have conscience!
A beautiful tree amidst the green field
Crime to fell a tree
Global warming a warning
Save and make it free!
Tree the home of birds
God given green shelters safe
The unkind have swords!
Forest our great wealth
Man’s duty to protect nice
He has greed and strength!
Source of rain- forests
Ever to be protected
Lo! Man stands farthest!
Happy home with all freedom
Man simply annuls!
All parts of a tree
Are of great value to all
Man simply fells free!
Forest fetches rain
For the whole earth to prosper
Unkind man brings pain!
Tree, forest, jungle
Man’s precious allies sure
But he keeps single!
Green forest quite cool
Men and animals enjoy
In His hands a tool!
Around the eucalyptus
God’s pleasant present!
TREE THE HOME OF BIRDS!
