    Mighty mountains, gentle breeze
    Flowing rivers and lush trees
    Natural carpet, a green grassland
    Together they make, heaven on earth

    Scented breeze, says flowers around
    Birds chirping, rhythm to ears
    Taking toxins in, letting oxygen out
    Trees make teachers, a friend in need

    Grains of sand on a pleasant land
    Whispering waves, sand-built caves
    No work, no one, no noises around
    Eternal bliss, is a walk by the shore

    We humans know only to take
    Fruits, plant, water, nature for granted
    In return, we have nothing to give
    But building blocks and concrete jungle

    Dig the earth, leave no treasure
    Sky and earth, for selfish pleasure
    Looted her of all her wealth
    Yet she smiles, so we breathe easy

    Luxury, work and wealthy gains
    Makes mother nature writhe in pain
    Her anger shown in catastrophe
    Momentary fear, but we seldom stop

    A barren land, parched and thirsty
    Lamp posts, towers, greenery replaced
    Smoke in air, troubled lungs
    A gift passed on to the generations to come?

    Each one feels, what can I do?
    Think!Drops of water, make the ocean
    Save water, power, minerals and more
    As much as one can, to restore!!

    Enjoyed reading your poem Sudha
    Those green meadows those singing birds, those beautiful flowers nature give us so much of fresh air and beauty to our eyes and we human destroy them to build concrete jungles on them and destroy the beauty of the nature.
