Treasure Island

Neela Nath


Stupid I


My stupid I,
do not know,
the sight of the
falling snow.
My stupid I,
didn't see,
the depth of,
unexplored sea.
My stupid I,
never watch,
how the honey-bees,
do flowers touch!
My stupid I,
do always kill,
the busy ants,
doing their drill.
My stupid I,
can never stand,
to enjoy the sky,
and beautiful land.
Now, my stupid I,
want to feel all,
she missed before,
Oh! Nature's call!

    Nature exposes herself in many ways, but the man is often ignorant. But Neela is aware that is why she wrote this beautiful poem, (Report) Reply

    We get distracted
    we get bullied
    then comes harms way
    we are blinded by the dark
    so much cannot see the day
    aa long we realize our mistake
    and come back just to play (Report) Reply

    God has created the nature so beautifully it amazes us if we observe it. The sky, the landscape, the rivers and seas, the animal kingdom everything is so perfect and awe-inspiring. But unfortunately sometimes we have no time to take a good look at it and appreciate its beauty. I enjoyed reading your beautiful write (Report) Reply

    We are all guilty of not observing the beauties of nature around us, because we are so preoccupied with our daily lives of hustle and bustle. But at least we poets recognize this and are aware of nature even if we dont always take the time to look. We should take note of your lovely poem Nil. (Report) Reply

    My dear Rachel, so sweet is your comment. I'm also among them, who ignore nature's beauty.I feel sometimes, now-a-days I forget to watch sparrows and their nestlings, the wild flowers which I used to see in my childhood days are meaningless to me now.So, I penned this poem. Thanks a lot for your wise comment. (Report) Reply

    dear chandra i am sure nila is referring to some people in general,
    who do not take notice of nature, you can see from her poem
    she notices everything down to the smallest of God's creatures..
    this is awesome love this fabulous write.. :) (Report) Reply

    Thanks and best wishes,
