Poetry

Choice

Green fields and yellow flowers,

small huts and big trees,

colorful birds and monochrome cattle,

underneath the vast expanse of clear skies.

Chitter-chatter of young girls,

cackling laughter of small boys.

Smoky puffs of old men,

and melodious carols of household women.

Amidst a cool breeze, fresh with life’s fragrance.

A sweet spot of Nature’s tricky balance

will all be a matter of only remembrance?


As I was travelling few days back, driving through many cities, I came across numerous villages nearby the highway. All the beautiful scenery and green fields, lush with crops, made me realize that how badly I have missed all this. It made me question, what our civilization is really heading for? How much longer do we have to appreciate the bounties of nature, before it all vanishes? All that overthinking and worrying inspired this one.

Are you a city person or miss living the old way? Do you sometimes catch yourself wishing for a much simpler life that our older generations enjoyed? I would appreciate your thoughts!

Have a great week ahead, Cheers 🙂

  2. Sweet Bulbul I agree with Sidharth. Your words are so beautiful! Your poetic phrases lovely. Yes, my honey and I plan to simplify our lives and foot print even more but we live modestly already. Love you my sweet friend.

  3. First i was painted with a very beautiful picture and then it disappeared like smoke and it was so damn painful. You have the way with words that it aims directly to my heart. Beautiful!!

  4. Aaah…what a beautiful scenery you painted using your words.
    I have always lived in cities and so very used to the hustle bustle and chaos. That said, the quaint world of nature attracts me much. When I was little my dad would take us to his village, where he still had a few relatives living. I have some immensely beautiful memories of the place. The calm, the love, the need to call everyone your own and listening to stories, under the tree and stars. Simple and serene undertakings.

    1. I know right! I visited my dad’s village last week, almost after a decade and it was something I can’t describe in words even if I tried. The peace and simplicity, the nature’s touch, the abundance everything was kind of spiritual experience for me.
      Thanks for the kind words, Pallavi ❤️ I am glad that you shared your beautiful memories with me 🙂

  6. A magnificent post as always. Your words are my passage to a new world! It’s always a delight to go through them. I live in a cement jungle (city) so yes the very thought of lush green fields fills me with joy. Thank you for sharing such a lovely post! 🙏👏
