The life speaks

The life speaks

A Poem by Bala Gorthi
"

For a life that is omnipresent

"


I enter as a spark and give a glow
Like a silent song, I come and go

As a stretch between two statics
I move fondly in all the biotics
Flowing in the confined tiny cells
I grow them to nature's marvels

I end here and then begin there
As a pulse here, as a leaf there
I bud and bloom, and I bear fruit
I drop a seed, go old and uproot

Somewhere, I pump power in the wings
Of all those beautiful flying things
I swim in the water using those tiny fins
I pounce on paws and catch my victims

I suck sticky juices which they call honey,
Nectar or blood, all those words sound funny
I beat in the hearts, I suck from the roots
I stand erect, I fall down as my end shoots

But in humans, I find a variation
My happening brings celebration
My resting mourned in congregation
"Why is it such a big deal?" I go gaga,
An unnecessary gala over nature's saga.

Stop, stop, stop it folks, everywhere it's me
Live me with a glee and allow me to fly free.

WOW! WOW! And WOW! This is so imaginatively detailed & vividly described! I am also "ga-ga" over nature, but you've managed to blend so many sensory delights into a tapestry that seems to say: we're all in this together . . . we all have some aspects of these observations, like sweet sticky juices and pouncing on paws to catch our victims. I love the way your message starts out on the molecular level, suggesting that we all start as a cluster of cells & how we turn out can be a variety of miracles! This is superb writing! (((HUGS)))

A perceptive poem that has a greater depth than first appears, that opened a new aspect for me that I had never considered before.
Life in all its forms, whether protoplasmic, animal or human, all have a common thread, survive and reproduce. The added dimension in humans is the expense of dying, which has become a business in itself. Your last stanza gave an oblique reference to this.

Thank you for Your visit and appreciation.
An ode to life in all its differing forms.

An interesting choice of perspective; writing from the point of view of Life itself. A neat idea.

A poem that flows through all the natural forms that life encompasses, the birds, the beasts, nature and man.

A very nice write, Bala. Original and creative with an interesting rhyme scheme.

Thank you, Doodley for your visit and appreciative words.
yes, people sometimes forget, leaving this life is a journey to another...all that sadness...we should celebrate instead...really like the use of near rhyme in this.

"I suck sticky juices which they call honey,
Nectar or blood, all those words sound funny

Wow! I loved the imagery here! Nature as we know it, and you've defined it beautifully! It's funny how it really breathes in us and we're sometimes too ignorant of its presence.
I loved reading this :)
