A Retrospection


I paid the price and many others with me,
Washed beaches, flooded houses, broken trees.
When both the mother and child weep, I ask myself...
Is it the wrath of Mother Nature or fruits of our deeds?

  2. Brilliant thought. It depends up to you how you take it. You can blame mother nature and you also can blame your deeds.

  12. True Saru, difficult to say it is wrath of nature or fruits of our deeds! Hope peace and tranquility returns soon.

  13. Beautifully asked in verse.
    Nature being a mother can never destroy willfully. Hence just our misdeeds revisiting us.

  17. You’re in New Jersey, right? You won’t believe perhaps but when I heard the news, you came to my mind. Whatever these natural calamities are, it’s very unfortunate and disturbing. I hope and wish things are improving now.

    You expressed a lot in few words.

    Take Care:)

  19. Dear Saru,
    An excellent piece of poetry, an expression of your inner consciousness in unison with the tragedy.This is the way of nature or, may be 'fruits of our deeds'..Don't know what it is...
    Stay strong, don’t let the devastation overwhelm your inner strengths.
    ((hugs))

  25. Saru! 'both mother and child weep' would be correct. Feel free to delete this comment.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Mmm! Mother Nature is very forgiving but we are taxing the limits.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The wrath of mother nature is because of our bad deeds. :( A touching portrayal of a natural disaster which you personally saw and experienced. I am so glad you and your family are safe, Saru. Prayers to all those affected by this tragedy.

  29. "Is it the wrath of Mother Nature or fruits of our deeds?"
    The mother, howsoever loving and kind, has to sometimes slap the children for their wrong doings!
    Very nice retrospection!

  31. First, congratulations on your 100th post. I do not leave my footprints here everytime, but you know I read them all. Thank you for your words. :)

    And, hard to say that whether it has been our fault. Since, the earth, the storms, the winds and the rains has all been present here long since we inhabited it. And they always will be here. May be the nature likes to remind us once in a while, how weak we can be. Teaches us to be humble and love and cherish life. At least that is how is how i see it. :)

    Hope, you are doing fine now and are unscathed by the nature's fury.

  42. Saru.. that was so thought provokingly written. It is really sad that nature has bore the brunt of all abuse from us for a long long time and some times when its patience is exhausted, she lashes out at us as a warning for us to take heed. But we have grown to be too thick skinned. The amount of climate change I have seen over the last 2 years has left me shell shocked and worrying about what the future holds for us.

    I hope things are back to normal for you. Take care Saru. :)
