Nature-You Inspire me!-A Poem

Updated on August 17, 2017
ChitrangadaSharan profile image

As a writer Chitrangada likes to challenge herself by writing on different topics. That includes fiction, poetry, food, education, culture .

Far from the clamour and commotion,

Sometimes you need a break,

Break from the regular life,

Some peaceful moments,

some quietness and tranquility!

Nature inspires
Nature inspires | Source

I was drawn by the sound of the waves,

Coming from the window facing the sea,

So here I stand, beside the sea beach,

The waves are roaring but with calmness,

How different from the sound I escaped!

Nature as healer
Nature as healer | Source

The waves rush towards me ,

with glimmering silver light,

Now they conclude to begin again,

How gentle is the sea,

with all it's mighty power,

it never crosses it's lines !!

( Notice the Metaphor in the concluding lines)

      You are right--Nature is beautiful, inspirational, peaceful ! But it can be furious and terrifying at times!

      A lovely poem. It seems humans are drawn to the sea. It is sometimes peaceful and sometimes terrifying. I enjoyed your words and the beautiful pictures.

      To be in nature is always a getaway for me too from the clutches of daily chores. Your poem took me there at least for a few moments. Beautiful creation!

      Thank you Nadine May for your kind visit and comments!

      Living near a Sea beach is a privilege and I can imagine how relaxing it may be for you. When I was in Bombay I used to visit Sea beaches very frequently. Beautiful moments spent there.

      Thanks for appreciating the hub!

      Wonderful. So often by just standing into the surf while the waves are brushing our feet, a calmness comes over us. We live walking distance from the beach, so that is what we do over a weekend, visiting our nearest beach.

      I am truly inspired by nature. Currently, I am traveling in an RV and spending a lot of time in mountainous areas. I love the roaring seas as well. It is truly glorious. I enjoyed your poem. It captures the beauty of nature and shows how being in natural surroundings can calm our minds.

      Enjoyed your poem very much. Your words took me back to the refreshment of past visits to the beach. The ocean's majesty is most certainly inspiring. You have reminded me of the last books of Job. Job 38 comes to mind, as well as Proverbs 8:27-36. Thank you!

      Great, Chitra. It is really appealing and inspiring! I used to visit the beach every Sunday during my childhood when I was staying in Chennai. I miss it for generations now. Only once I revisited it some 10 years back after returning from Uttar Pradesh and before settling in Hyderabad.
