The One And The Many

The One And The Many short poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

The snow-capped royal mountain
Oversees the landscape beneath
Like a mighty monarch seated
On a throne high above the earth

Spread at the feet below
Flower beds form a velvet carpet
Emanating fragrance and cheers
And the magic of rainbow colours

Content in its sovereign status
The mountain looks a picture of grace
While myriads of minor creatures
Flourish under its benign space

But apart from the poetic musings
The truth is also realised
That all this is Nature’s artwork
Displayed on the canvas of earth

Be it the imposing mountain
Or the vast desert expanse
Broad- bosomed rivers or seas
Or the most trivial grasslands

And we in our limited times
Can only praise and honour
This magnificent craft of Nature
Perfected by the Supreme Master .

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. .

Boots in air an elite brain hangs out from the tall tears. It does not search an exit. Time moves out with a murder in eyes. Leading a spartan life in a lair, in tune with absolutely zilch. A sexy
