Mother Earth has been very kind to us in providing us everything from birth till death. It has on its crust trees, birds, forest cover and everything; lofty and majestic mountains, vast sea, water reservoirs, mesmerizing scenic beauties, flora and fauna, animal world and what not. All these add to our sustenance in our daily lives.

Mother Earth contains all sorts of mineral wealth which is helpful for further growth and development of the countries. But exploitation of the mineral wealth has also got a limit. We are cutting trees indiscriminately affecting the eco system. Industrial wastes are being thrown in the rivers polluting the water. We spew dangerous gases to the atmosphere affecting the atmospheric balance. Not only this even teh Antarctic Continent is being adversely affected by the acts of us humans.

By our acts of omission and commission, we are doing everything to spoil the balance of the nature which is causing negative results implications to our next generations.

With this intention in mind, I have penned down a poem, MOTHER EARTH. Kindly go through and comment.


By our acts of not caring,

What we do to the Mother Earth so dear?

Which bestows us with all sorts of gifts,

Which sustain us from time we become flesh & blood,

Till time this body sustains us not,

With no expectation in return gift from us selfish humans,

We leave litters around,

After partying & feasting at the mountain site so enchanting,

With fragrance of natural flowers just intoxicating,

Making the environs heady,

Adding splendour are the flora and fauna,

But the left over litters just spoil the virginity of mountain spot,

With spread of odour of leftovers of the people partaking foodstuff,

Stench also stenches the act of these people,

Who spoilt the place with their profane acts.

Left out road side old vehicle parts,

Wait till eternity for the people to pick these up,

Nobody ever comes to do this solemn act,

Till elements like winds and rains mix these in the Mother Earth itself!

Vehicle repair workshop just line up the roadsides,

Blackening the area with grease and what not,

Generating a shabby look around,

Green cover is being denuded,
For habitats for increased numbers,
And cultivation of food for multitudes,
Thus multiplying the adverse implications,
To the eco system,
Causing blizzards and change of climates.

Plundering the earth of the mineral wealth,
In the form of crude oil,
Precious metals, stones and coal,
Leaving the earth bereft of natural resources,
Thus misbalancing the internal fabric of the earth,
Which too comes out & reacts most violently,
Causing earthquakes of huge intensity,
Spreading deaths and destruction all around hugely.

Spewing of gases so poisonous,
To the sky above,
Enlarging the black-hole,
Impacting us by harmful sun rays.

My humble please to us all,

Have some pity to the Mother Earth,

Not for us but AT LEAST for our coming generations,

If at all?

  1. Great imagery. If I were not a Christian the religion I would pick is that of American Indians. Their animism and shamanism exudes such reverence and respect and a sense of connection with the earth. Thanks visit my blog.

    1. Thank you ever so much for such kind remarks. Please visit again and give your comments. These add to our common knowledge.

  2. Wisely said. We should never forget that Mother Earth gives us everything for our survival everything and in return what do we give?
