World Poetry Celebrates Vani Pradeep!

Ariadne’s Notes:  We celebrated the amazing Vani Pradeep, World Poetry Director (India) World Poetry Canada, Author, International Poet Motivational Consultant, Accountability Partner (Australia).

   Vani Pradeep has done so much for this Peaceathon and all of our Peace events through the years. 

I commented on her activities below and read her poem but the show was never archived. I will try to read all the poems this coming week again and hope they will be archived.

” Here is an update on the Just an update on the World Peace session planned at the University of Madras.

I have got the proposal through to the Dean of the University. He wants to take up the event as a University-wide one and has proposed the plan anytime between the last week of October or early November due to pre-planned academic sessions and exams. I will take it up then and send the session recordings and text.

Between, I have planned a Woman Centric peace session for this weekend where I have designed a self-realization Kit called the ‘I Wanna Be…’ kit — which will lead the taker into self-realization, an oath and ‘being at Peace woman’. I shall send details of this session post-weekend.

Thank You.

Peace and Love, Vani. “

 She also writes: “I have followed the UN theme for this year’s peace poem. I have poured my emotions into the poem. Kindly let me know how you will be able to accommodate the same into the radio show and into World Poetry Canada’s website. Thank you in assurance… 😊🙏👍

Continuing my peace work into the month of October.👍

Into the Furnace…

Down memory lane,

I can sense fresh air blow on my membrane,

I can breathe-in the smell of mud

as the first rains kissed Mother Earth.

 

Down memory lane,

I saw a flock of birds swim past the vast skies;

I saw a shoal of fish in the ponds to fetch food and stay together.

Boundless was the ocean in tranquility.

Down memory lane,

I saw extensive tree species and plantations

cover expansive soil.

I inhaled non-polluted air

that was safe for my existence.

 

Today, as I run into my present and

Run up for my future:

I am startled by the air that touches my skin.

Higher degrees are displayed by AQI (Air Quality Index),

as injurious gasses have been infused into the atmosphere.

I am harmed!

 

Can my children no longer play in the sands by the sea?

Polluting it with plastics and non-degradable material – is shame!

We ask blessings from Mother Earth. But, we don’t give her preservative care.

 

Today, as I run into my present and

Run up for my future:

Many species of birds are facing extinction.

No sparrows left around to show my next generation.

Oceans and seas polluted by materials that can’t be digested by it–

The Outcome: Many sea creatures dead to death.

 

Today, as I run into my present and

Run up for my future:

Mass Plantations slew the soil…

I see mass erosions; I miss fresh air;

I am trapped in floods of climate variation.

 

Flee planet earth and mount over the Moon?

Is this solution…?

 

Today, as I run into my present and

Run up for my future:

Need to ask ourselves – Why wait anymore?
