Treasure Island

Tribhawan Kaul

(01-01-1946 / Srinagar (J & K) India)

God's Wrath


HIS benevolence knows no boundaries
but incomprehensible is God’s wrath
thinks not twice while taking away all
forewarning always never to cross HIS path
but none heeds and who cares
nailed to cross one who dares
“never blame me, ” thunders HE
blame the elements
wrecking the havoc
humans invited the wrath
what a pity!
Raping the nature’s generosity.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Devastating cloud bursts and subsequent ravaging floods killing approx.10,000 and erasing villages after villages of Utrakhand/India made me write this poem. Who is actually responsible?

    God has already answered evil, it is we who are scared. Who will give his own flesh to save another is as a god. (Report) Reply

    who is actually responsible, the culprit is not difficult to find... we commit presumption...we are the SO WHATTERS, we take things light which ought to be taken seriously, we do not feel fear, we are audacious, never think never to cross His path...and Nature demonstrates when that Divine wrath is provoked...storms are not devastating...it's we....

    Most of our miseries are man made and there is no point in blaming God! He created a beautiful world for man to inhabit, but man's excessive greed and thoughtlessness for the posterity bring upon us untold miseries! A great write! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
