Something seriously wrong today
Dawn of the day without the chirps
No sigh of the wind, no flapping of the wings
Everything is moving in silence!
As if nature went mum or doesn’t want to hum
Oh! Mother earth, are you annoyed?
Sounds of the morning make me feel alive
Say something, what’s troubling?
Drops down the clouds without ‘pitter-patter’
Silent rain rolling down as tears of the eyes
Everything is so calm making me restless
I plead you to speak, oh please don’t be quiet
“No one wants to hear my words anymore!”
The buzz of the flies, slosh of water, rumpling of leaves
Ah! No ears for the sounds that I make
You humans turned deaf to my chatter
My beauty, my talks no more make you flatter
All glued to phones, plugs firmly covering the ears
Guarding your senses from outside ecosphere
People on the walk way, metros or malls
In the cafes, parks, gyms and homes
Earplugs always on, listening noises of the device
What nature says….. Who cares!?
Some sound interrupted the conversation
Is it raining outside?
Oh! Thank God it was just my nightmare!
