Support - Haiku

The Mother supports,
Carries burden, patiently,
Nurturing with love.

Humans destroy, crush,
Satisfy own selfish needs,
Bleeds Mother Nature.

  2. You draw out a great paradox here. Nurturing versus destroying. Lovely piece of writing.

  3. Where would we be, and what would be our joy, if Mother Nature quits her job if we continue to abuse her? Nice work

    1. We are a very careless being..we should protect nature sooner rather than later.

  5. Mother painstakingly took care. Belligerent elements with their sick agenda destroy. The way of the world, Green Speck! Agreed!

    1. Thanks for complimenting the poem ... As for the image, that isn't my creation .. I searched for it over the net.

      Glad you liked it :-)

  10. Oh, we do make mother nature bleed with our rashness though she's very supportive... Good contrast, like Helen says.

    I do wonder if the last line would read better as "Mother Nature bleeds.." or "Mother Nature grieves"..

    1. Thanks for your suggestion Leo ... This is what I always look for from friends like you ... criticism and suggestions so that I can improve and make my work better :-)

      I would prefer "Mother Nature bleeds" as I wanted to use the word "bleed." But then, I wanted to put more stress on "Bleeds", and thus used "Bleeds Mother Nature" and not "Mother Nature Bleeds."

      Thanks for your suggestions ... Hopw you would be a regular reader of my blog :-)

  13. This is a brilliant piece. The first made me think of a mother and her child, yet the second hit me right between the eyes. What a strong and dark message. The suffering of Gaia.
    Well done:)

      Regarding the picture, it's not my creation, though. But the creator really made it superb, and I am glad it complemented my haiku well.
