Ma, tujhe salaam…!

You engulf many homes,

When you hit as a Tsunami;

Yet you give us the strength to build our abode back!

You swallow countless lives,

As you shudder and the earth gives away;

Yet you give us the spirit to bravely move forward!

You drown numerous innocent lives,

When you choose to incessantly pour;

Yet you give us the energy to start new lives again!

You parch a million mouths,

When you sulk away from the wetness;

Yet you give us the vigor to withstand your moods!

You erupt with a magnificent glow,

When the dormant lava is shaken awake;

Yet you give us the vitality to re-form all over again!

You bring a smile on our faces,

As you spread your glorious colours across the sky;

And it makes our hearts light as we enjoy your ambiance!

You bring joy to the masses, 

When you stretch yourself as a carpet of radiant flowers;

And the sight of your beautiful sheen is a treat to the eyes!

You fill a myriad of empty stomachs,

As your grains sway to the music of the sunlight;

And you provide us with things, at your will, to make life worth it!!

Oh Mother Nature, I humbly bow to thee,

For, YOU have the real power to rule

Which we mortals are sometimes so blind to!!

Ma, tujhe salaam!!
