Man in the Universe

So, you think you know it all?
Then you haven't looked around,
So much to learn from Nature
- it's beauty that surrounds

Air, Fire, Water & Earth
different elements but one in spirit!
They teach man the 'Power of Union'
Coexist, embrace harmony, together man knows no limits!

Fruits & flowers we pluck, uprooting them
Our benefits they serve - of food, worship, mere decore...
They teach man value of service, despite death!
Find joy in being selfless & make love not war!

The mighty Sun, the illustrious giver,
humbly sets each night for the rising Moon
Together they teach man of humility, of letting go of the disastrous ego...
However big, you need to step back at times, for a greater boon!

So, you still think you know it all?
Then you forget and ignore that you are just a ' Man in the Universe'
Learning is immense, hidden in each second, each moment!
Open up your self & in nature let your being immerse!

  6. A wonderful reminder that man coexists with everything else in the universe. Difficult to read because of the background. If you could center your text in the middle of the light colored space it would work. ♥ Loved your poem!

  8. The background Aditi is still not correct. Or the setting of your blog has some issue. Besides that yes the poetry is very beautiful. And the way you have expressed the nature and its immense knowledge is very apt when see the prompt..

  13. That was a beautiful attempt. Indeed we do not know anything. We are just learning something or the other every second and nature definitely is the Mother who has immense knowledge.

  18. Nice poem Aditi! Nice job running with the cue.

  19. That was a nice encouragement! The benefits we gain from pondering upon The Story of The Creation cannot be counted, but humility is one. When we understand every thing Adam discovered is an aspect of the human being, we will loose any pride. God bless your week!

  28. I always think the human race is sort of accidental on this beautiful planet of ours. We seem incapable of honoring the elements ... instead, we try to corral them and shape them into something we want. This was a thought-provoking and awesome poem.
