We too will be Extinct!

We too will be Extinct!

Through the windows, I get the scene
Of the most peaceful river, I have ever seen
The sky has gone white, making the day bright
But here comes a thought!
What if there's a severe drought, in the future?
This nature of peerless beauty!
What if it is lost?!
Now there's green everywhere,
What if in future it won’t be there?
This thought haunts me a lot!
Look at us humans!
This wicked construction,
Is leading to our own destruction
Why should we forget, the valued culture
Of worshipping Mother Nature?
For a long time,
Has been saying my instinct

    Great Poet Shristi...Keep Penning !

    Yes man is not Essential to this Universe and will soon be extinct:

    Earth seems to be telling us…....................
    ’Man you are a nuisance and really not necessary.
    The Earth, Skies, the Air and Water are purified with out.
    If and when you come back remember not to treat me as your slave but as your guest. ‘
