Chitrangada likes to express herself by writing fiction and poetry. Her writing reflects her mood and is inspired by the beauty of nature.
There is no one here,
Just me, and the forest,
I can feel the Earth’s pulse,
I can hear their heartbeat,
The elderly trees,
Firmly holding the soil,
They don’t walk, but,
They do talk, in whispers,
They sing and dance,
All year and seasons around,
Ecstatic, glad, and moving,
Celebrating for not becoming wood,
And thus, just like that,
I found my soul, in the forest.
Spending sometime in a forest— Thoughts behind the poem
Have you spent some time in the forest?
If not, perhaps you are missing out something really fascinating on the planet Earth.
Most of us live in cities, mega cities, and have the constraints of time.
Once in a while, we should break the monotony of our regular life, and spend some time with the beautiful Nature.
Not only does it relaxes you, but it’s good for your mental and physical health.
Nature is the most beautiful creation of God, and forest is the place to see, how to live in harmony, have patience, and be calm and quiet.
Forests can teach us the lessons to have patience and perseverance, to coexist peacefully, to share love, the resources, the Sunshine, the soil, and the rain.
And, most importantly, you might hear your inner voice.
“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”
“I took a walk in the woods, and came out taller than the trees.”
Henry David Thoreau
