A Walk

A walk
in the evening,

Past the piles of bricks 
and through the thick populace
where the wheels take over 
and the shouts and horns resound.

I think of Wordsworth's evening walk
and of emotions recollected in tranquility.
But what have I to describe,
and what have I to recollect?
Is it the noise or the smoke,
Or the filth and the garbage?
Or should I create a chronicle,
On creatures on the verge of extinction?

And then the sky begins to sprinkle
I feast on that moment of pleasure.
Silently wishing for more or so,
To erase the brutal scars of time,
To make the earth whole again.

  1. Marvelous! Simply amazing! And the theme of it makes this poem all the more beautiful. Hope this work of yours gets as many reads as possible, 'coz it tells us something that we don't often care to think about. I am a nature enthusiast myself and everything i write has something to do with nature. So, when i see someone writing about nature, i feel elated.

    Thanks for sharing this! :)
