Fury of Nature

Harish Mamgain is passionate about writing. He loves poetry.




Thou are dread, deluge and destroyer are thou
Thou regardeth poor rich, good bad all equal

Thou do attack all of a sudden and plunder everything
Neither has sympathy in thy heart nor any compassion

Thou pull down buildings as well as castles of life
Tender feelings of heart and distant dreams of guys

Thou destroy beings and non beings with equal rage
Thou snatch the baby who drinks nectar from her mother's breast

Kill thou the honey moon of couples, halt the lively game of kids
Wonder which place do thou come from, who are thy well-wishers

Thou pull out wings of butterflies, and thou ransack the gardens
Thou demolish the heaven created with toil and love

Companion of death are thou, nemesis of life are thou
Songs of death do thou sing, everywhere do thou wreck havoc

Do tell us which verses we recite to avert thy wrath
Which worship does satisfy thou so that we could live happily

Yes Chitrangada Sharan , Mother Nature is very pretty , and she is so bountiful ; yet sometimes the humanity face disasters of such magnitude that we are compelled to bow before her for mercy !

Thanks for reading this post , and for you valuable comments.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on March 28, 2019:

This is a very well composed poem, which truly gives an idea of the Nature’s fury.

Nature is abundantly beautiful but so unpredictable as well. I have experienced some natural disasters, such as the Gujarat earthquake and can relate to it.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem!

Ann , thanks for kind appreciation. You described weather conditions prevailing there. Nice to know that all is well.

May Almighty keep all safe from the nature's rage !

Ann Carr from SW England on March 17, 2019:

This is powerful. Nature does not discriminate does it? As you say, it is a leveller.

We have had a couple of weeks of bad winds here and now some floods in parts of the country. As I live by the sea, the wind tends to be fiercer, especially at high tide. However, nothing is as bad as you have described. We are fortunate in that we don't usually get extremes of weather in Britain.

Your imagery is compelling.

Glad you liked this stuff on disaster. John, people invest so much on their dwellings with love and great toil , but the calamities snatch all that all of a sudden. The humanity has been grappling with this menace for ages , but of no avail. Thanks for reading and commenting , my friend.

Hi Rubi ! Hope all is well. It 's been awhile I didn't write something on hubpages. Thanks for you comments. It is the unpredictable nature of disasters , and immesureable human suffering that motivated this piece.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on March 16, 2019:

Wow, Harish, what a powerful piece of writing. You captured the essence of “disaster” perfectly, and made it seem like a cruel statistic antagonist. Well done.

Hari, while reading this I thought about the terrible disasters we have endured all over the world, and I wondered why. So many innocent people hurt or killed. We had a tornado in Ky. this week, no one killed but homes destroyed. It usually happens in poor neighborhoods. Your words told of the horror so well...

Harish Mamgain (author) from New Delhi , India on March 16, 2019:

Thanks for you kind visit Eric. Disasters are mostly unpredicted. You mentioned you own experience. It is really unfortunate. Hope you are well , my dear friend.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 16, 2019:

Really good. This is well done indeed. When we bought a home I researched chances of natural disaster in the area. I wanted one on a hill with a great view but that was exposed to nature's wrath.
