Unicorn Fish

Unicorn Fish

Free Verse Poem

There’s a Unicorn swimming,

But where are its legs,

It is scaring me,

It is small, not like a unicorn,

But in fact like a fish,

A fish with a medium sized horn,

I will call it a Unicorn Fish!

It swims rapidly, it swirls rapidly,

It is a Unicorn Fish!!!

Inspiration, Unicorn Fish:

Although uncorns are legendary creatures but non existent now a days. But unicorn fish does exist and I have seen it in an aquarium in Malaysia.

This free verse and short poem is about my thoughts when I have seen it with my eyes. I keep on thinking that how I could relate it to such a legendary and fairy creature but finally I gave up as it was just a fish confined in the aquarium.

Anyhow it was a unique addition to that aquarium and among unique aqua creature.  There they had some unique aquetic animals like angel fish…. but we loved this look a like legendary creature.

The Land and the Sky

Free Verse Poem

Warm water warm seas,

Not better than the rest,

Writing one while cold,

No way of heat,

Grass cries with fear, no heat, no warmth,

Flowers growl while they follow the winds above,

Wake the flowers,

Take the howlers,

No time to run or jump,

Sky wind blows high,

No one knows why,

Study the sun,

Study the speed is the only one,

Land or sky,

No one knows why,

Where to begin,

The land and the sky.

Inspiration, The Land and the Sky

The theme of this poem is wide subject of land and the sky.  Both of these have several discoveries all the time and there is no limit when we can say that now we have discovered everything.

We have yet to discover the seas and oceans and creatures living in them. Scientists are still discovering new species of flora and fauna. New galaxies are being discovered and we have limited life to even travel to the nearest one.

So the question is, where to start? the Earth or the Skies?

What is your opinion about uncertainty around Earth, seas and sky, when we will be sure about it? or may be it will be an open subject for human beings?

Short Poems About Life

Short Poems about Life, Slug

Slug – Free Verse Poem

That slippery slime,

That crawls out of damp places,

In the sorrowful night,

It wishes to find a home,

A home of vegetables is like a dream,

If it was a dream like no wonder any slug likes one,

When they crawl out in the day light,

In the garden full of vegetables,

Their dream becomes one.

Inspiration, Short Poems About Life:

This poem is about life of a slug.  It searches for a better days during its life cycle.  It spends all his life searching for a better place of living. Mostly dreaming of a home of vegetables.  It crawls during night time to search for a place to live happily but never knows that it is a dream for most of his fellows.  Once it find a perfect place to live like a garden of vegetables. That makes his dream come true.

Most of us dream of living a perfect life but that is impossible.  every stage of life has different challanges and we spend most if our lives to attempt these challanges.

Once that slug finds a dream place to live, it gets more predators and ultimately that dreamy life is very short.

Thats what this is one of mine short poems about life.  What is your opinion about life and challanges on the life?

 

Save Water

Free Verse Poem

We drink and use water,

Without knowing what it does,

What benefits it gives,

Water is around but has decreased,

Without knowing that the world is drying,

Before the leaves get crooked up as life,

We need to save water, to save our life,

Water helps everything,

As we need to help it too,

We do not need water just to drink and use,

We need it, to help it, so it can help us too.

Save Water; Poem Inspiration:

This is a free verse poem on save water.  Water scarcity is one of major issue globally and particularly in Asia.  With increasing population, most of the countries faces issues in water scarcity.

Although this issue is being created by humans themselves. But now most of the countries are thinking of conserving waste water.

Save water means saving precious lives of all living beings.  Countries are focusing on planting more trees and teaching young generations to conserve water.

Aqua is basic need of humans and all other living beings.  Its cycle should not be broken otherwise we will face challenge of drinking to fulfill basic need of our body. Less amount of rainwater will lead to water scarcity.

In order to avoid the worse impact of waste water, we should consider saving water for coming generations.

Water pollution is also a major concern that haunt the nations on aqua conservation. Major rivers, seas and oceans are polluted with plastics and other waste which harm marine life and ultimately all living beings.

What is your opinion about save water strategies? Should it not be implemented on individuals basis or it is responsibility of the Government?
