Children On The Beach

Children On The Beach short poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

Hey children ! How happy you are
Playing on the beach In pure merriment
Leaving aside all past regrets
And worries of tomorrows to come

Artfully you build these castles in sand
With utmost skill and care
Decorating them with cute seashells
Picked from here and there .

Little do you seem to be bothered
As time and again these mischievous waves
Rush shorewards all so suddenly
And wash away everything in a flash .

Instead of giving up your playful gesture
And crying over the lost labour
You begin to build all over again
Taking the mishap as part of game .

Watching intently from nearby
I can’t but praise your sheer wisdom
That makes you keep your firm resolve
Of never yielding before any hurdle .

And wish we grown ups too could have
Such spirited and balanced attitude
To meet life’s such odd challenges
With playful but determined fortitude .

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. .

Children prose poem

We are mere children of the void. Specks on an infinitesimally small mote in limitless space. Lost by size, overlooked by indifference. A universe indifferent to our existence. The stars will shine, the planets will spin regardless of our future.
