Woodcutter Vs Woodpecker - Poem by SALINI NAIR

A crack that compose some wonder
Freeze to be out of dare
The melody was not on its way
But the creak that quake all around

Fall that pedigree an age
That squeezes the blood of land
But the span that lost it for now
It's the fall of a tree behind

Yesterday a woodpecker hit on its side
Its rhythm that was embarrassing
But any way it was not a deal
So never gaze at that effort

Worms may be delicious on his beak
It never hurt tree as he pin it in to worms
Though it's an act of murder
It prosper a life on endurance

But now on the way is a loss
That loss its life in silence
It's the sob that hear as a creak
As this tree also had a life

It was so splendid with a crest
Inn that ladle many lives
But it lost its time
As a woodcutter parch its spine! !

    The wood pecker by pecking at the trunk never leaves a perennial damage, but the wood cutter destroys the tree for ever, though both the parties do it for sustenance and survival.... Enjoyed the poem Salini! (Report) Reply

    Though a small incident, out it a beautiful poem that too thoughtful expressions and predicament of life is described in this poem and good imaginations. The loss of life of the tiny worms and in the end the life of the woodpecker itself by the wood cutter clearly and beautifully narrated in this poem which have sentimental feelings of the natural happenings around us which makes one poetic mind concern.

    It is an arrangement that life lives on the death of another life. We eat fruits, leaves, stems and even roots of plants and trees if we are a vegetarian. We kill animals for our food.Whether. Both woodcutter and woodpecker damage a tree. The law of might being the right is enforced everywhere. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem Salini...I love the beautiful lines...

    It was so splendid with a crest
    Inn that ladle many lives
    But it lost its time
    As a woodcutter parch its spine...Very true said, it's painful when the old tree is cut down to nil. For it had life that is chopped off. Though woodpecker too did hammer the tree with its beak for the living insects, but it never hurts tree.
    Beautiful title caught my attention. I loved it. (Report) Reply
