The Feathered Wonders

The Feathered Wonders prose poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal


These wondrous creatures
With graceful feathers
Painted so beautifully
On the vast canvas
Of the earth and sky
Models of Nature’s sublime art
Emanating pleasure and wonderment
Perpetually .
As if deeply dipped in colors
Made in Nature’s own secret vaults
Vibrant and pleasing , radiant and rich
Prismatic in their unique effect .

And equally blessed do they sound
With voices vivid alluring and sweet
Chitter chatter chirrup and peep
Warble and coo in melodious tweet

Who but Nature is the ultimate artist
That ordained this inimitable blend
Of colors and sounds and mirth and spree
And put them in frames so merrily free ?

Oh how I wish to borrow and feel
A little of this heavenly grace
Though for a short and transient phase
It would still be an immense bliss !

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .

Wonders ... long poem

I cheer up when I see thy nature… Thy nature in depth of creativity… I wonder how thou created wings… Wings of those unbalanced creatures… Those angels and demons… Silencing parity of loquacious radars… Those unsung musical rhythms… Rhythms that

Feathered Engineer short poem

There is a chilbil tree near our grandmother’s house, Full of weaver bird’s nest in monsoon season, God has created everything for a reason. The grassy strands are woven into cosy, Intricate nests for their spouse. The male baya painstakingly
