A trip to the wonderland

     


        Hey !   you happy riders !
      All set for  an adventure trip  ?
      Won't you please take me along
     Or just share  as to whither
      You go  galloping  today ?

''  Up the hills and down to the vales
Across  the streams and rivers on way
 Through green meadows into the dark woodland      Home of   strange .animals and birds  .

Excited  are we  to seek  those caves
 Where  Mowgli ,the jungle boy  once  lived
  Within a  family of wolves  as a child
And moved in the forest with deadly animals .

Panthers  and tigers and mischievous monkeys
Bears  , squirrels  , pythons and snakes .
 Would like to see if they can really be friends
Or how could he spend his childhood  there !

 we plan to go on  even  farther
As the horizon keeps calling for ever
And we  as well  are  keen to  find
If a fairyland does exist somewhere .

With all its glorious magic castles
 Hidden in  the midst of thick  green trees
Laden with flowers and luscious fruits
Such as we have never  seen  and tasted !

Maybe there is a demon   too
That has made the fairies captive
Sure ,we  shall fight and scare him away
And set  the good fairies all free !

And then we'll hurry  again homewards
Before the sun  goes behind the  hills
Oh  how exciting it will be to narrate
All this to mom dad before going to bed ! ''

Invoking the Rain gods


Come month of May
And the sultry Summer is here
With   its fire and fury
In full swing

Like the most unwanted guest
It comes  without   invitation
And continues  to overstay
Despite the hosts'  disapproval .

All  equipped with its lethal weapons
Of deadly  sunstroke and killer heat waves
Wrecking havoc on the  land and skies
Whatsoever comes   in its stride


The    landscape all  parched up and dry
Along  with countless thirsty creatures
Is facing death- like conditions for long
And  seeking  a little respite  for all . .

Even the Sun God seems  to support
 This cruel ,  insensible   game  of   power
Or why  is fire being poured from heaven
Turning the earth into a blazing furnace ?

Hence  , Mercy ! Rain Gods ! Have mercy on us
Rush down kindly  in torrents to quell
The sadistic  play of this unkind   season
And  restore cool times  of simple pleasures   !!!

FORESTS IN FLAMES



               
             A forest on fire
            Is the most terrible sight
            That will haunt one ever after
             As  a dreadful nightmare  !

            It brings untold  sufferings
            To the myriad forms of life
             Ranging from soft  green grass
            To the bushes and tough  tree trunks.

             And host of ants and tiny  insects
           , Bees , butterflies and  birds in nests
              Mammals with new born  offspring
              And even human  beings  close by .
   
               All are madly   running for life
 .             Here and there in  utter  distress                
              To find  shelter somewhere   in the place
             .That  once had been  their own  safe  home .

             What caused this most terrible  incident
              Is  a question   that troubles  everyone
             Whether it was  nature or some human  being
             That wickedly planned  this criminal  misdoing   .

                 Was it a spark created unawares
                 By some one's  acts of  sheer negligence
                 Or  the result of a  deliberate  offence
                 Planted with some selfish intent ?

                Whatever the  reason be ,  but  now
                 The bitter truth we sadly   realise
                That unable are we  to fight   this  blaze
                 However hard  we go on trying  .

              Hence as the  ultimate   resort  , we all
             Are   turning  for help to  you my lord
             Pray.  save your helpless creatures  soon
             By pouring down your merciful showers  !!!
