Environment 14 - The Angry Rains And The Pink Rose

Poem By Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon

I am a little pink Rose!
I bloomed to see
This beautiful world,
To enjoy the monsoon,
The cool touch of the rains,
The sweet dew drops on my petals,
The gleaming, shining white pearls,
The magical showers of the heaven!

But Alas! When the monsoon arrived,
The rains poured down in great anger,
The rains pounded the earth, trees and hills, without sympathy,
The rains just devoured the houses and people without any empathy!

What wrong have I done to be blown away by the fiery, rainy storm?
What sin have I committed to be torn and crushed into the deep earth?

What wrong have I done to be blown away by the fiery, rainy storm? What sin have I committed to be torn and crushed into the deep earth? Hasrat hay roobaroo na kareN hashr meN mujhe Kitne mere sawal hayN jinka nahiN jawab (Mir Taqui Mir)
Very emotional poem which highlights the pink rose which blooms but gets destroyed within seconds for no fault of her own. This poem shows the poet's sensitivity and care for nature. Congratulations.
Very emotional poem. It is very saddening for the pinknrose. When the rains pour in heavily on the beautiful slender rose is destroyed within seconds. Congrats The poem shows the consideration and sensitivity of the poet towards nature.
Congratulations, Geeta Ma'am. I'm delighted to visit to this poem yet again. It turns up a new leaf of life's philosophy every time I come here. Thanks for this marvelous poem.
Nature very well portrayed here with the personification of a little pink rose and its woes how well presented 10+++
