- The Sunrise.
- Nature provides pictures in the form of floods.
We live among the beauties of nature and beauties of nature live in us. All around can be seen the mysteries of nature. Both the animate and inanimate objects of nature offer new scenes like a film on the screen. The sunrise is one of the most glorious scenes of nature. You can feast your eyes on the rising sun. The world is at its best in the morning. All flowers, trees, bushes look beautiful in the soft light of the dawn. The birds sing. The animals frish about. Only the early riser can see the best scenes of nature.
As the sun goes up the whole world becomes golden. At noon it is an ocean of sparkling gold which overflows the houses and the fields. The entire landscape glistens and dazzles the eye. The sunset has its peculiar charm when the sky looks like a vast sheet of burning fire. Nightfall offers new beauties and new tunes. At night nature puts on a black gown like a lady at home. The black garment glitters with the diamonds of the stars. The moon is the biggest diamond. The voices in the night have a supernatural enchantment. The whole atmosphere is soothing and the calm and peace of the night makes people poets and philosophers.
As the scene changes many times during a single day, so it changes during the year. Spring is the best part of the year. Flowers of different colours are in bloom and give out a rare scent. The birds sing happily on the trees. Spring is followed by summer which gives new meaning to life. Then there come the monsoons which wash out everything in nature and give it a new greenness and new glamour. Then there comes te autumn when leaves fall down and the trees become bald like the old people. Then comes the winter when in the cold countries the whole nature wears one vast mantle of ice and snow. The cycle of seasons goes on repeating itself so that the beauties of nature never become monotonous.
Similarly, the mountains and the seas offer beauties which we do not meet with on the plains. The high snow-capped mountains, the tall trees and deep gorges with torrents flowing through them offer an enchanting scenry. The waves of the sea striking against the shores with the fury of an elephant show the silent power of nature. The calm sea offers to soothe our nerves. The sea-gulls come and then fly away reminding us of the transitory nature of human life. Nature provides horrible pictures in the form of floods, the bursting volcanoes, and the falling ice bergs. One can find the beauties of nature wherever he goes. Nature is always young always new, always inspiring. The striking thing is that sometimes it is red in tooth and claw, and sometimes it is as calm and serene as the voice of our soul.
