Ganga & Me

May 10, 2014


You are me and I am you
As Life, in this Universe
Through and through…
We both arise from the same source
To plot and chart our journey’s course

Travellers are we, destinies in-twined
Through the portals of History and Time
Swift you flow to nourish and sustain
Eager am I to and gain
Harbinger of fertility and joy, you inundate
I merely, stop, direct, irrigate and regulate
Unceasingly you continue to billow, swell, gush and cascade
Unceasingly do I continue to pollute, dam, bridge and trade
Unimaginable is existence without your giving
Unimaginable are my atrocities upon your living
Still you chuckle, gurgle, surge and spurt
Still I dump, destroy, ravage and hurt
Where do we go from here, my mother and friend?
For in your destruction, lies my end
Our cataclysmic extinction, may good sense avert
With love, intelligence and compassion, let’s be alert
