Shehrey Ansari

When dark departs, soft aurora shows up

Sun engulfs blackness and tranquility is found

Sun rays make doorway through tall pines

Sparkle bright and rest on mud ground

Healing is earthly odour of under woods and grove

Ethereal are red golden leaves lying on loam



Drip-trips are secret to the music of nature

Chattering squirrels and humming starlings add

Melody to white noise of splashing water

Of steams lined with mossy rocks on land

Canvassing the blue light of dusk in mind

Is tuned with oddity when wild wolves whine



Water prisoned amid trees as green glass

Reflects thick clouds of shadowy leaves

Can put an intuitive spirit in ultimate spell

Owls hooting woodpeckers spiraling up trunks of trees

Reveals, distant wooden hut chimney, emitting fumes

Nature favoring some soul with all her tunes
