************************************ She was a lovely Vast expanse of blue draping Mother Earth with her magical hues Her pristine waters Reflecting the skies overhead Providing the ideal ambience For the romantic soul!
Her brother, the chivalrous sun Visits her from dawn till dusk His sunrays exuding warmth Protecting her from All sorts of danger!
Her lover, the mysterious moon Visits her silently every night Ripples of passion Putting her soul on fire In the form of raging waves!
Her womb is bedecked with Colorful corals, reef Jellyfish, starfish and Other amazing flora and fauna Giving birth to an amazing Treasure trove nurtured by her, The loving compassionate mother!
(This is a favourite poem by one of my favourite poets, Dylan Thomas)
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower ______________________________________________________
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees Is my destroyer. And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.
The force that drives the water through the rocks Drives my red blood; that dries the mouthing streams Turns mine to wax. And I am dumb to mouth into my veins How at the mountain spring the same mouth sucks.
The hand that whirls the water in the pool Stirs the quicksand; that ropes the blowing wind Hauls my shroud sail. And I am dumb to the hanging man How of my clay is made the hangman's lime.
The lips of time leech to the fountain head; Love drips and gathers, but the fallen blood Shall calm her sores. And I am dumb to tell the weather's wind How time has ticked a heaven round the stars.
And I am dumb to tell the lover's tomb How at my sheet goes the same crooked worm.
Reading books at night is like Wandering in ethereal World of words & emotions to emblazon the Pearl of Wisdom on the Canvas of Life . With Dragon's zest wallowing into Ocean of thoughts to blare the Bonfire of Hope in the Core of Ignorance .
