I was thinking of the sky; Where does it end? I was thinking of the sea; how vast it is?
One day I was all alone sitting in my garden
I was thinking of the sky; Where does it end?
I was thinking of the sea; how vast it is?
I was thinking of the land; how expansive it is.
Many such thoughts came in my mind
But I did nothing;
Lot of I was supposed to do
But I did nothing.
Suddenly somebody called in my ear,
“See the pleasure of being with nature”,
I was astonished. There was no one.
Was that the breeze or the cloud.
I wondered but I thought how good it
will be to be with the nature: always.
Suddenly somebody called me
and I was back in my world
But now I think
why we do not try to experience
the true love of nature and explore
the correct way to live life.
