The nature, A Woman

A poem written by me–

“Mother nature, yes she is

A mother, a woman.

But oh! What hypocrisy

Exists in this world

you call her a lady

just to mark your control over her.

still a strange similarity

exists between the both

you worship the nature,

you worship the woman

in idols, in dieties, in scriptures, in texts

the woman, who gave birth to you

the nature, who supports your breath

you then poison her slowly

you, Such an ungrateful child!

Still, despite the scorched and dead lands,

despite the burns, the wounds on her hands,

she has been tolerant, humble, mild.

Oh! She is an eternal giver

a source, a shower of love

but now hearts are not placid,

and rains are turning acid,

your ignorance makes her shiver.

Shall she remember she is the mother of love,

and forget that she gave birth to strenght?

the winds are as soft as they are mighty

she is powerful, bold, she is shakti

she is not an example of infinite tolerance,

but the one who fights with those who deserve the punishment.

her screams and agitations,

the roars of the oceans

cannot get unnoticed everytime

the waves have hurled and broke the dams,

the earth has shaken in anger

Now she will give it back nice

and will kick you twice

if you dare to harm her.

it’s true, it’s true, the nature and the woman

were sculpted out of energy,

that is how they tend to rhyme.

they were sculpted in the same manner,

by the mighty divine.”


Note: In mythology, Shakti is the concept or personification of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as “The Great Divine Mother”.


Don’t you think them both to be similar?

Do share your views.

Love.

  1. Hi pramegha –

    I like the concept of your poem, The nature, A Woman, very much, and this phrase really caught me:

    Still, despite the scorched and dead lands,
    despite the burns, the wounds on her hands,
    she has been tolerant, humble, mild.

    – It’s a very strong image

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. By the time I finished reading this, I just had one line ringing in my mind :
    “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”
    And since we take Mother Nature for granted most of the times, knowingly or unknowingly, we are bound to receive a backlash from her alone.
    Loved the message your poetry has put across.

  3. Wow. This is something really. Since you’ve mentioned Shakti here and related it to the divine power of creation and nourishment, I would very much want you to read a poem I wrote titled ‘Tandava’. Its an abstract poem about the cycle of creation and destruction and how those cycles are reflected in us too as we change and grow. Wow. So glad I came across this.
