All Is Not Lost Still…

Even as Mother Earth groans in pain

Letting out

Nauseating drools

Of collected insensitive waste

Relentlessly, selfishly stored

By callous humans,

There is hope I feel –

Mankind will understand,

Learn lessons from past mistakes.

 

When the tsunami

Hit the shores of my city way back

I understood how vulnerable

We all arrogant fools are.

Watching big establishments

Float away

Despite/inspite all development

In a neighboring nation,

My heart goes out!

 

The time for the last call

May not be near at all.

Mother Earth just decided

Enough was enough.

Conveying to us a wake-up call.

The ultimate optimist

I still believe we have time

To recollect, to analyse,

to realize…..

 

All is not lost!

With prayers of well being to my brethren in Japan…..

    Absolutely right, Shail. All is not lost, there is still a lot of hope for mankind and this world. If the planet perishes we go with it, but the earth will survive without us, so we have to wake up before it is too late. Hope the lessons are sinking in all around.

  2. Thanks Shail for this nice one. Many of us still continue to think problem is only with Japan and we are very Safe. This type of attitude is very disturbing. I hope that writings like this will help in ‘shaking up’ our friends who are living in their own islands hoping that no force on earth can disturb their life.

  3. Yes, Shail. All is NOT lost.Japan needs the prayers of the rest of the world. Lets jointly pray….

  4. A beautifully written sentiment, Shail, and I so agree with you. There is still time to change our ways, and also to realize our vulnerability and interdependence on each other. Your poem gave a moment of peaceful contemplation to the chaotic situation that exists, I thank you for it!

  5. Amen…

    Dear Sherry. Thanks for the comment. Let’s all pray and hope for the best…

    Hi Hari,
    I agree entirely with you. It is only when problems befall us that we begin to worry and wonder. And yes, we all need to come out of our islands and wells and re-connect with the entire universe if we have to survive too….

    Yes, Shail. All is NOT lost.Japan needs the prayers of the rest of the world. Lets jointly pray….

    Dear Om,

    Thanks. Yes, we all need to pray and send vibrations of peace of well being to the ones affected. God bless All…

    Hi Josie,

    Thanks for dropping in. Yes, what else is there to do but realize and pray for the welfare of all. Of course, those who are suffering only know the pain but the rest of the world can at least sit and pray…

  10. Ashwathy :

    Amen…

    Thanks Ashwathy…..
    God bless all…

  11. I certainly don’t think our actions cause earthquakes but I do think that there are many things we do do wrong which don’t help. We are not sensible in our use of the earth’s resources and we are such a wasteful species. We clearly live only for our own generation and do not care for the future of our children and our childrens children.

    Let us pray this is a warning and not a sentence. We must keep pounding the drum.

    Hi Old Egg.

    Thanks for sharing. Yes, we seem to be using the earth’s resources without thinking, selfishly. No wonder then, we are getting deprived (slowly and steadily) of all the precious things we have taken for granted.
    I too wish and pray that this is only a warning…

    Hi Old Egg,
    Thanks for sharing. Slowly and steadily we seem to be getting deprived of all those things we hold dear only because we have been taking them for granted. Sad. Let’s hope and pray as you said, that it is only a warning and not a punishment.

    With prayers…

  14. Hi Shail, we seem to be remarkably on the same wavelength. It is not the physical actions of man that causes natural disasters, it is our destructive habits in most other directions that is causing ‘Gaia’ to rear up and say: “Now hold on a bit. Take heed of my warnings.”

  15. Bhargavi

    My prayers are with the people of Japan, to rise from this very rehearsal of the Great Pralaya.

    Very true, Shail, let us not contaminate our Mother Earth and be true to our celebration of Earth Day.

    Hi Altonian,

    Yes, very true. People who write, who exchange ideas, thoughts and reflections from the heart pave the way for a new awareness which already exists in society but which is kept intentionally dormant.
    Praying with you for Japan, for mother Earth.

    Dear Bhargavi,
    Yes, that is what we have been doing all along, contaminating the Earth. Let’s sit down and make amends at least now…

  18. Beautiful poem and end sums it up – our hearts and prayers are with Japan…

    Thank you!

  19. How very true indeed! The suffering, and the devastation is unbelievable, yet it has become a common sight all over the world. Time is not on our side, and I am so afraid for the young folks who is inheriting this mess. At times like this, I am hoping that the gods of our world step up to the plate and save us from ourselves.

    Thanks Ljm.Yes, the forthcoming generations have very little good in their hands and we are not giving them the right message too.
    God protect us and help us understand and realize that we MUST act while there is still time.
    And pray of course….

  21. well done, sad reality check.
    Thanks for sharing.

    well done, sad reality check.
    Thanks for sharing.

    True Jingle. A very sad reality check indeed. Time for all of us to act fast in our own little constructive ways..

    Thanks.

  23. The thoughts you bring up in this post scare the hell out of me considering recent events on our planet. Let us all hope it is not too late. My heart goes out to all the people with broken hearts in Japan. I feel almost guilty to be in a safe place.

    I think this is one of the most significant info for me. And i’m glad reading your article. But should remark on few general things, The website style is great, the articles is really excellent : D. Good job, cheers

  25. When humanism blends with poetic thoughts and pen a wonderful poem takes birth! It is terrible to see the beautiful country of Japan massacred by natural calamities. The holocaust also reinforces the fact that however scientifically and technologically we may be progressive, mankind is just a toy in the hands of nature. But Japan is also the story of a hardworking populace and am sure will soon be able to bounce back to the path of development and progression.

  26. Shail, I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments. You have an ethereal way of expressing this grief… whereas I took a “were you there” approach for the Thursday Think Tank at Poets United (are you a member there? You should be):

    Peace, Amy

  27. thanks for sharing…very true indeed..sad also…

  28. Very true indeed!

    Hi Linda. Thanks for sharing. Yes, sometimes I feel that too, about being in a safe place but every place goes through calamities, individual or collective, natural or man made some time or the other. Some kind of karma being worked out, me thinks.

    Hi Amy,

    Good to see you here. Grief has a way of doing it, making people express themselves differently.
    By the way, I am a member of Poets United but don’t always participate. Will do so now….

    Dear Geeta,

    I hope so too that Japan will bounce back. You never know how nature works (karma, etc). Such things keep happening all over the world (individually or collectively).

    Thanks for the lovely appreciation…
