Treasure of Nature

(This picture is captured from the room of my hotel in Noorpur, a small town in West Bengal)


Beautify the earth
Be a treasure of Nature,
So that your journey
Reads like an artistic tale
That can inspire the lost souls.

Tanka is a classic form of Japanese poetry related to the haiku with five unrhymed lines of five, seven, five, seven, and seven syllables. (5, 7, 5, 7, 7)

Linking this poem to Poetry Pantry #277

  1. That picture which you captured from your hotel is amazing and lovely. And when we are an inspiration to the lost souls with collaborative nature then it's a blessing. Great writing Purba :) This poem is really naturalistic to read.

  6. I so hope that those 'lost souls' will be inspired to 'beautify the earth.' What a gift to all of Nature this would be... Very nice tanka.
