Nature Speaks...

As in its own stillness does Nature celebrate its reflections,
Only in the stillness of thoughts does thinking truly resonate.
Then need restrict not the beating heart- its galloping emotions,
The ocean’s calm is perturbed not by ripples that reverberate.

As clear the water is, so perfect the image.
As if the object’s itself, in water, immersed.
The ocean can even capture the foliage,
So is the cleansed soul which captures the Universe.

The smallest flames can kill the dark.
Warring worlds too have drops of peace.
Placid oceans- their crystal spark,
Contemplate and you’ll find relief!

In ocean depths,
On mountain peaks,
Listen with care-
’Cause Nature speaks.

~Almas Kiran Shamim

I say with modesty, humility, and truth: "NATURE SPEAKS" is the best poem I've ever read--or understood--in regard to nature...and us!

SERIOUSLY! So much beauty, in the image (photo?) and your thoughts. It is not an easy matter to express so well the simplicity of learning: "JUST LISTEN, PEEPS".

(The other day I almost 'unfriended' you, thinking, since there was little reciprocation, we had nothing to trade back-and-forth.

THEN you write THIS! Thank you, friend.

Oh! Did I say I liked this post?--grin!

am honoured Steve... thank you so much :)
it feels good to know that you understood wat i wrote....
i hardly, if ever, succeed in bringing things across to ppl...:(

this poem sprang from something that my sister told me.... on our trip to Baratang Island, we use speed boats to visit the various tourist spots...
my sister had pointed out how even the powerful engine of the speed boat can disturb the calm ocean for not more than 5 seconds....such was the calmness of the water
this pic was taken from a speed boat....

:_( almost breaks my heart that you were bout to unfrnd me :_(

:) but....thank you for likin the post :)

It is good to leave alone the poems you write, not take them offline.

Someone...someday...will read, enjoy, and be inspired, and sometimes thoughts which God sends us to speak or write, change lives!



Now reading ... "Crime and Punishment" by 'Fyodor Dostoyevsky'.
