Poetry, Day Nine: Landscape

Poetic Device: Apostrophe

Dear Tagore,

You  left this earth long ago,

Your songs and poems we treasure more,

It always feels you are back as someone else,

In one of the verses of your song,

It says, ‘who says I am not there,

on a fine morning, I will take part in every

game, I will have a new name, then who will say,

I am, not there that morning.’

I wish you really showed up one

morning, so I can tell you,

how much I love singing your songs.

Wherever you are enjoy yourself,

you’ve left enough poems and songs

for generations to come!

Thank you!

…….…………………………………………. 🙂

Landscape — Shalimar GardensIphone5_(6386).JPG (3264×2448)

 

 

 

 

 

Beautiful Shalimar gardens

You are awesome indeed.

Emperor Shah Jahan built it for Royal Pleasure,

Now   you are  Pakistan’s treasure!

……………………………

Channels of water in your gardens are fed by canals,

Your Gardens are divided into terraces,

Upper one is the Bestower of Pleasure,

The middle is Bestower of Goodness,

The lower is Bestower of Life,

I hope these names do not cause a strife!

…………………………..

I saw you when I was a student,

I couldn’t take a shot of you,

I didn’t have a camera.

This is why I have an image of you from wikipedia!

It’s a joy to see the change of weather

It’s time to fix the garden for this summer

Clearing the garbage is not an easy task

Who will do it for me I often ask?

 

In comes a truck with three young men

Said they, “give us a chance  to fix your garden.”

They look like amazing workers that I’m sure

My neglected garden all winter does it have a cure?

 

They worked hard to make the landscape bright

Daffodils, petunias, peonies they made it look all right

One question kept lingering on my mind

The grass I have, is this the right kind?

 

On hearing this, the leader said, “Don’t you worry,

We’ll bring the best sod in a hurry.”

Everything was in order the men started working

They were  good they didn’t waste  time talking.

 

My landscape in front looks great

Come see neighbors now, I Can’t wait.

I think I’ll arrange to have a  party

I’ll serve all kinds of stuff and make it hearty!

365 Writing Prompts: Landscape

When you gaze out your window—real or figurative– do you see the forest or the trees?

I am in front of my computer, I can see what’s out there, it’s not a very optimistic view. The rain is falling and my neighbor’s tree sans the leaves is standing still with occasional breeze moving its brown tiny branches to and fro, reminding me if I go out ,I better dress warm because nature is not providing the warmth.

Then there is the dull grey sky trying its best to provide some room for the sun to show itself, for us to hope, maybe just may be the sun will take over and the clouds will be pushed out.

Then there is that sound of some crows, who probably are wondering, we thought it’s spring why do we see snow, they are reminding in their own language to nature: “Did you forget the season, it’s Spring for God’s sake we want flowers, fruits and the pretty birds, why aren’t they here.”

To which nature replies: “It’s not my fault, ask your humans, they are the ones who are destroying everything on this planet, ask them when will they stop littering, drive cars, that are not environment friendly, need I say more, do not blame me blame the humans.”

The poor crows are sad and they are saying,” Humans please co-operate, so we can have decent weather!”
