Firm On The Ground

Sometimes we are so still

And no different than trees

Our every pore thinks hard

The mind touches things

Our body seeks nothing

And the heart reaches far

Firm on our legs we stand

With elan, do face all storms

And we don't want to wander

Love to hold harder and firm

Like to mingle with the rains

And drink all darkness deep

The autumn sucks us hard

And draw the sky asunder

We take on the cruel world

And grow the roots deeper

We trudge in sheer silence

Sometimes we are chucked

Sometimes we are hugged

We learn to walk in solitude

We speak without the tongue

And stretch hands not to grab

Don't move when axed hard

How we stand alone and calm

      I can see your words as roots that hold me firm to the ground. Then I see your meaning as my branches stretch into the beautiful sky reaching far over head. I enjoyed my connection to mother earth where we all are grounded. Thank you so much for sharing.

      John, you are such a wonderful poet and I relish your poems with all mirth and thrill. I am honored to have your comment on this stuff. I just dabble in connecting some words here and there and this hub is the result of that effort. Thanks a lot for appreciation.

      Great poem Harishprasad, I love that you compare us to trees. We are very alike in many ways though trees are not intent on destroying the human race and are much humbler...lol. We can learn a lot from them.

      This is beautiful. It is a parallel to your hub about kind-hearted people, "Firm on our legs, we face all storms."

      Thanks, Devika for stopping by and saying such kind words about this stuff. I love plants and trees and these are some words that I learnt from trees, our great co-beings.

      It is just an attempt to say that we are not the only inheritors of this beautiful earth and the bounties encased in it. Thank you very much, Eric, for your kind support and encouragement as ever.

      I write with so many words. My insecurities and doubts are clear to all. You right with so few and so say much beautifully I will always be your student.
