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)

FALLING RAIN DROPS AND WITHERING LEAVES

Photoed by Mr. Vinayagamurthi of 13th Block

As the rain drops fall from the Heavens
Mayflower tree in front of my flat showers
Dried yellow leaves and lovely flowers
Feast indeed to our gifted nice eyes!

Around the car that I have parked under
The leaves make a nice garland clear
Leaves dried and green due to rain
God’s makings great and glorious!

Two dozen cars parked in front
All are blessed with garlands around
Man cannot compete with such lovely Nature
With all his power of brain and features!

Man named the seasons including awful summer with character of its own
With special fruits significant for the summer heat and thirst

But Fiber and water important for healthy digestion. it has both.
Has high water content making it hydrating and helps one feel full.
Low-calorie fruit high in nutrients, carotenoids, vitamin C and cucurbitacin E
Has compounds- cucurbitacin E and lycopene, potential to prevent cancer
Has heart-healthy components, lycopene, citrulline and vitamins and minerals,.
Lycopene and vitamin C anti-inflammatory antioxidants Inflammation controls diseases.
Lycopene helps keep eyes healthy and protects against muscular degeneration
Its juice is a recovery beverage after exercise avoiding muscle soreness.

Not a very costly fruit- nor available as much in other seasons
Sure we have to take as much as possible for good reasons
God knows what is the best and at what seasons and reasons
Let us enjoy-no water melons sans seeds- no life sans problems!

NO SHADOW DAY August 23rd.

 

What a wonderful creation of God the Almighty,
Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient-mighty!
Sun and moon, stars and planets, sky and earth, hills and mountainside
Nature’s manifestation-God’s magnificence- indeed great!

Shadows -morning to noon and noon to evening lovely watch
Long shadows getting smaller and smaller-growing taller
And taller- bad friendship morn to noon shadow like and good
Friendship is like noon to evening shadow like- nature’s beauty!

Lack of shadow is beautiful!Happens twice a year,
For places between twenty three point five plus and minus
Degrees latitude! The Sun is almost never exactly overhead
At noon, but transits a bit lower in altitude, a bit
To the north or south. Earth’s rotation axis is inclined
To the plane of its revolution around the Sun – varies seasons!.
Sun, in its highest point of the day, will move south to North
Of the celestial equator-Uttarayan and Dakshinayanin a year!.
The northern most and southern most two solstices,
And the crossing of the Sun across the equator two equinoxes.

For people living between the degrees referred the Sun’s declination
Equals to their latitude twice On these two days, the Sun
Will be exactly overhead at noon and will not cast a shadow on the ground.
This Zero Shadow Day falls today in Namakkal District of Tamil Nadu!

Six souls while females have five souls.Grand festival !

PONGAL DAY IS TOMORROW 14th January

 

Great India that is Bharat- holy Motherland of stature
Has its ways of living and worshiping noble Mother nature
Tomorrow is Pongal day-makara Sankaranthi- holy day
For all when the Sun deemed to be God worshiped by all for His grace!

A great day is tomorrow to thank the SUN GOD
The giver of love and light, power and strength
End of harvest season bringing cheers and joy
Plenty of paddy and sugar cane to enjoy!

Agriculture sustains the world and people
Agriculturists sacrificing their all
For you and me deserving our thanks and praise
Let us keep their joy as ours and make them rise!

Let on this day our prayers go for the world
To prosper! Its welfare and peace goal golden!
Forget not the animal friends who serve us
All through in their own way without making fuss!

Bull fight, rekla race, ruse fight-depict not valor
Sure inflicting on the dumb beings a terrible torture!
To me the Tamil, my tradition and culture taught me more
Showing love to all living beings-humans and animals, sure.
