Conversation with Nature: A Poem by Anindita Mazumdar

When time is stored within sands of an hour.
When beauty is stored within the petals of a flower.
When colors are stored within the paintbrushes of the sky.
When motifs are stored in the wings of the butterfly.
When happiness is found in the smiles of a child.
Nothing is better when distance is reconciled.
When tears are mingled in waters of the ocean.
Entity gains strength in every devotion.
When the rhythm is found in incessant rain.
When knowledge is gathered in years of pain.
When music is confined in a gurgling brook.
And lyrics in nature’s lap, rather than a book.
When the truth is stored in the valley of death.
Life is ensured with every single breath.
When grief is stored in mountains of sorrow.

Hope stands still in every tomorrow.
