Poem of the Week - Nature and Life

Poetry Potluck of this week's prompt "Nature and Life" by Shashi as usual had many wonderful submissions from many creative writers  from around the world We at Jingle Poetry are happy to form a poetic group where we encourage to write and share poetry.As a rule Saturday 's Poem of the week is to be only one poem and it is been difficult selecting that one poem since a lot of them were magical creations of words.Yet again , here I present one such poem 'Wanderer in the wild' by Sherya Chatterjee

The poet Sherya  blogs her poems at ' a journey called....' and is already a published author of a book called'Musings of a Wanderer'.The wanderer in most of her poem sometime reflects her self.When you read the below poem you can notice how often we tend to be the same wanderer ourselves when we are faced with some challenges in our life.Yet finally ,we are still a part of nature and should be proud of that gift.


Wanderer in the wild




How often he thought
To break free his shackles,
To run through
The murky streets,
And dash into the jungle.

To shred of his etiquette
For once at least.
To bow in front of
Of those,
Untouched,
Untrodden,
Paths,
Those sounds that beat
In the same rhythm of his heart,
Those shades, those hues
That greeted him
In his mother's womb.

How could he have,
Forgotten his roots,
Forgotten to recline
Under such shady boughs
Run across such blissful meadows,
Drench his soul
In Wistful ponds,
Sing a song in
Unison,
To the chorus
Of small lives,
Hidden but loud.
And proud to be
A part of
Nature,
Since the birth of Time.
