Poem on Save Earth in English

When Shimmer Turned Dark

Shimmering was the sky, sat I
Was glancing the sudden change in verge of high.

Suddenly!
Shimmer turned to black and dark
Clouds growled at me like some hungry shark.

Then I saw the crying earth
Which was expecting the end of birth.

Then I looked at the restless water
Sea was wild accompanied by breathtaking thunder.

The scene around me was scary and troublesome
I guessed some danger is about to come.

Then attracted sea again towards its condition
Now it was giant wave with great explosion.

I feared to see the height
Which was enough to drown a kite.

Then I looked towards sky to seek for mighty
I failed as a roof of water covered me.

Wave was approaching me and i was helpless
Then I realized it’s all we humans mess.

We disturb and harm mother nature
and expect her to stay calm and bear us butchers.

We seek birth and life from this earth
and selfishly forgot all its worth.

I was about to leave this world
It was then something I heard.

It was monotonous sound of nearby generator
Then I realized it was earth no water.

My eyes were wet with horror
A mingled feeling of relief and terror.

Though virtual but that scene taught me lesson of reality
We though humans but forgot humanity.

Just running after the wealth
Without thinking about nature's death.

Don’t dawdle, think briskly over the condition
Otherwise nature would think 100 times to grant us motion.
Nature would think 100 times to grant us motion.
