Hail nature!

Hail nature!

A Poem by costa siwale
"

As poets we all love nature and the elements, go green and preserve

"
In water's waves
Fire's flames
Air's gusty wind.
Earth's dust
tree leaves
icy chilly feel.

In whis-per-ings
Shiny things
Green grass that sways.
Starring skies
Luna eyes
Even sunny rays.

Nature speaks through all of these,
So lend a listening ear.
And let grow, until there's more
So we may still be here.

What a brilliant poem. You have used all the elements in the first verse and I love the hyphenated WHIS-PER-INGS .... its just like whisper. Clever you.

thank you soo much
Very evocative describing words. You are quite right, Nature will still be here, even if we all go. But my fear is that, what with pollution and all the destruction, poor Nature might expire! Well written poem.

thank you for reading Lydia
The first verse is nicely syncopated leading down the path to personification mid the forces of nature and a critical message to be heeded.
