A hundred faces of nature.

A hundred faces of nature.

A Poem by Mehak Mushtaq

A house made of birch
It stands near the church
It is full of words, yet silent
So peaceful, yet so violent.

A river of blood flows
Love and hatred so close
It's the modest yet so old
The soul is shy, yet bold.

A tree of shadow grows
While it is surrounded by foes
It's a blessing, yet a bane
Visitors are wise, yet insane.

A nest of bird lives
Unpleasant silence it kills
It's soft, yet so loud
The creator is humble, yet so proud.

A garden of weed thrives
It's so idle, still survives
It's a wanderer, yet not lost
There has been winter, yet no frost.

To the city of saints it belongs
My singer of evil songs
So sinful, yet so divine
The airs are heavy, yet so fine.

Very beautiful. Just as the title says, you portray the many faces of nature. Like human beings, each part of nature is completely individual. No tree is the same; some stand completely straight while others are bent and gnarled. No river flows the same path; sometimes they run in opposite directions. You did a wonderful job of conveying such individual differences.

Wow, a poetic paradox that makes sense, this is beautifully written, and despite the contrasting lines, the poems meaning bridges them to the beauty of natures many faces

Really poetic. I can't tell what exactly the poem is about but it's soft and confusing at the same time. One of my favourites for sure!

A visit to a crumbling house. Vital in years gone by.
Also can take this to a person's life.
