Awakened Conscience

a poem by Gopichand Paruchuri

I strolled on the green pastures early before sunrise
Numb were my senses to the pleasant surroundings
But I could feel the heavy air pass through my bellows
The moist vapor on my lashes and tip of my nose is balmy

Now my senses oped to the Nature’s fragrance and blooming day
A smooth tickle passed from heel to head
I glanced down- to my astonishment- I saw a green spritly beauty
Inquisitively I bent down to see it!

I heard a murmur from the fresh shoots of life-giving grass
‘I sprinkled dew drops on your feet and wiped it clean
Walk on and on I thank thee for the opportunity to serve
A sudden flash- Lord grass is thy follower!
