Gulmohar Again
by Dr. Jaipal Singh
Bookmark and Share
 

 

In a life dull and forlorn
Owing to devastation and fear
Caused by an alien coronavirus
As I venture out after weeks
From my humble yet safe home
In this rather isolated yet sheltered lane…

Oh! It’s the month of May again
The time for Gulmohar to go green
And blooming full swing again
In the lane flanked by umpteen
Gulmohar flowers forming a canopy
Of brilliant and bright red from above
And a mesmerising carpet down below
Of the constantly falling scarlet petals.

The instant thought comes
Though these manmade disasters
Can stop progress of the life of man
For whatever short or long spells
But they cannot stop nature from
Going green and grooming in a cycle
To produce the scarlet bloom of petals
Dancing like the wild bright flames again!

Comment I fully agree with you, Kulbir Ji. Pandemic cannot stop nature and its recurring cycle. Flowers are blooming and birds are chirping/singing...while responding to your observation, I can still hear the sound made by two water fowls in the adjacent park. A water reservoir is located in the vicinity some five hundred yards away! Thank you.

Comment Nature is not affected by the pandemic - flowers are still blooming and birds are still singing.
