A Poem on Snow Storm

Snow storm

“A Poem on Snow Storm”

When the days are short, and the breeze is cold,

The mountains roar as the storm appears,

It outrageously makes all snow go wild,

All creatures hurry to hide,

But as it snows, it gets fine

All creatures come out

As the wind says

Don’t worry, the storms come and go.

 

 

A poem on snow storm, Inspiration:

Never been to any place where temperature is below freezing point.  But when my uncle and cousins shared pictures of Canada during snow storms and blizzards, I had this idea of poem.  I love to visit Canada to enjoy their local weather as I had enjoyed Ski Dubai, Snow Park, Dubai and Snow Town in Dream World, Thailand.  Both these were artificial recreation places.

Winter:

I love winter season as the temperature gets low and all we seek is warm place to just sit, read novels or play video games.  The moment weather forecast changes to cold, I get excited on it but unfortunately it never snows in our area.  Our local weather is such as we can have sand storm but no snow storm.  I wish winter in our area should bring whiteout.

Life after Storm passes:

It is really difficult for me to comprehend the after effects of such difficult weather conditions but life goes on and kids go to school as normal and parents to their jobs.  You could see children covered head to toe during the winter, heading to their school.

Most difficult part as per my cousins is the removing the snow from pathways and stairs but this job gets even difficult when its blizzard or white-out.

Animals and birds take shelter or sit it out during storm or blizzard but birds and my favorite squirrels take a hit during such weather conditions.

Photography is at best once the weather is clear and whiteout all around.

Ocean – A Short Poem

Ocean - A Short Poem

Poem

“Ocean – A Short Poem”

The Ocean is deep, filled with mysteries,

But we don’t see the mysteries,

We only see void,

A void that we can’t avoid

You only see creatures coming out of the surface,

But you never see them coming out of the ocean,

There are many things that we don’t know about ocean

“Can we retrieve the secrets of the ocean?”

 

Ocean – A Short Poem, Inspiration:

Whenever I had chance to go to beach in either Kep or Sihanoukville (Cambodia), Thailand, Dubai (UAE), Karachi (Pakistan), Bahrain, I always wonder what is there on surface at the end of sea or bottom of ocean. That’s what inspired me to write about Ocean, a mystery.

 

Oceans:

They cover 71% of the Earth surface area, contains 97% of Earth’s water but unbelievably only 5% has been explored until now.  95% is unknown for humanity. Every year new sea animal species are discovered and I believe this will continue for a long long time.

Few years back I heard Malaysian plane lost contact while flying over the sea but after efforts of more than an year, no one could figure out exact location of the debris.  It would be a mystery to resolve for the future generations.

I also wonder who owns these unexplored areas and if some country claim them as their territory then what is the use of that territory.  but then as Human population is increasing day by day so at some point do countries move to water to make up for more population.

I had always get worried about waste we throw in the sea especially the plastic waste.  These are worse for the marine life, climate, humans, peace, global warming and last but not least is for over survival.  We should think about it for the benefit of us and for the future generations.

“life – A Short Poem”

We have the opportunity to show our Maker what have we done,

When we were cloaked by the soul made from God,

We embrace different emotional stages

In the beginning, weak but no fear

Later strong but bursting of fears

Life goes on for an end,

Are we ready to show our Maker what have we done?

This is my favorite one.  Life is beautiful when we are at peace.  What do you think, comments please?

Butterfly – A Short Poem

Poem

“Butterfly – A short Poem”

When you touch its wings, it feels like silk,
When you hear it will make the noise of the bird’s chirp,
If you care, it will guide you to the light,
But now you see no light,
But go to the forests you will see,
A butterfly.

 

Butterfly – A Short Poem, Inspiration:

With more advancement and modernization, we have accustomed to destroying nature by throwing waste all around.  This is impacting life of animals and birds.  Less tree and greenery, we see lesser animals and birds and even butterflies.  This is how I come up with this poem.

Basket Ball Match – A short Poem

Basketball Match - A Short Poem

Poem

Playing rough, playing low,

No idea where to go,

May the best win and the rest stare,

Go aside as they stare,

Wish they could tear the pair,

No one knows where to fetch as they throw to the air,

May no one win as they don’t play fair.

While sitting on the bench for the whole match and watching my underperforming team losing it.  That’s inspired me to write this poem.

Basketball is high voltage game.  By nature or velocity of this game everyone is suppose to be with full of energy to beat the opponent.

Lily Flower, a short poem

Lily Flower, Poemtheart.com

Poem

As I was sleeping, I had a dream of spiders

they were crawling around the forest,

but there was one spider who was white,

pure white as anything white you imagine

it was whiter then the clouds as if it was a cloud

a cloud that is in disguise of a white spider

who ended up being a dream of the Beach Spider Lily.

 

Lily Flower, A Short Poem – Inspiration:

Beach Spider shaped flowers look beautiful during the day.  A contrast of white flowers on green leaves is just amazing.  I think this bloom really looks like a spider which might scare you in your dreams.

Lily:

Lilies are group of flowering plant.  These are found in various shapes, colors and sizes.  These have cultural importance.  White lilies symbolizes peace.  These are widely used in flower bouquet.

Water Droplet on the Leaf – Short Poem

Poem

Water droplet on the leaf,

The leaf was so special that it didn’t want to rush down,

As it is connected with the leaf,

But steadily the sun rises,

It had to go,

“Goodbye leaf“ as it swift down.

Inspiration:

Living in Phnom Penh, Cambodia bestowed me with a lot of opportunities to observe water droplets on leaves and flowers.  During rainy season, lasts of the rain drops for every shower, stays on leaves and after the rain, these seem to be connected with leaves.  It inspired me to write this short poem.

Rainy Season & Water Droplet on the Leaf – Short Poem

South East Asia is blessed with amazing tropical weather and you can observe nature at its peak in countries like Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia…..

Rainy season lasts for around six months.  During rainy season, some of the areas affected with flood. People of those areas have adjusted their lives according to the weather patterns.  Overall weather is nice and we see a lot of greenery. Rice crops have various colors till it is ready to harvest.  Lush green fields have an amazing look with white clouds.

People celebrate arrival of rainy season and end of it as well.
