Hear the Whisper

Bare branches
Bare branches peep through my window
Stand tall to inspire;
Rocks that I admire
As they love with fervor

Bare beauty that illuminates
At the command of Mother Nature
I watch from my cozy couch
How they entangle and crouch

Bare branches shiver and smile
Breathing eerie calm;
Waiting for their singing pals
When sublime spring calls

Watch how they weep
Bearing snow and rain
Wind whirls tender twigs
Not a word of pain!

Watch how they lit up
And say adieu to sun
But shimmer with delight
In moonlight!

Did you hear their whisper?

  1. I love everything about this poem, Balroop, and especially the phrases “Bare branches shiver and smile Breathing eerie calm.” My interpretation is how nature always whispers to us, if we stop and listen. Beautiful!

  2. I find the last para the most inspiring –
    Watch how they lit up
    And say adieu to sun
    But shimmer with delight
    In moonlight!
    It is in these lines, I feel the Indian mindset is well explained. How to adjust to everything in life.
    Bravo for these inspiring lines!

  3. Balroop, I do indeed hear their whisper … through the tender beauty of your poem here. 😀❤️ From my study, I love looking out at the trees and following them through the season. The moment the sunset shines from behind them is sublime, a moment you capture brilliantly in the last stanza. I like the idea of them bidding ‘adieu’ to the sun!

    Wishing you a lovely weekend, may it be filled with creativity! xx ❤️

    1. There are many whispers Annika, which are smothered by the humdrum of life… we just pass by without saying any attention. I am delighted to hear that you hear those subtle messages of mother Nature.
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts dear friend, much appreciated. Have a nice weekend.
