Nature as God’s Mediator

On World Environment Day …

“My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.”— Claude Monet

…also to be able to scribble words impromptu like I’m doing now, to pay reverence to Nature – the only way God communicates with me:

Thick dark clouds descended in waves
over Sunset’s tangerine hues – I was drinking,
and resuscitated me with streaks of lighting
and incessant claps of powerful thunder
that blew a conch shell in my mind’s temple –
awestruck by the blessings of nature!
— Shuvashree Chowdhury

PS: I’ve posted many more Nature photos and videos from the last year, in the link below, in an album ‘Lockdown Diaries’ – on my Facebook author page Across Borders

“The Twilight Sky”
White clouds float over me in the dusk sky –
patches of cotton embalming my tired mind;
a solo bird reaching majestically for the sky,
as a band of coconut and mango trees rustle
in the heady June breeze – to cheer its climb:
urging me to converse with the half moon,
just like the lone star romancing it tenderly
under the blanket of the cozy grey sky.
— Shuvashree Chowdhury

William Henry Davies

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
