THE ENCHANTED POOL

What untold secrets do you hide O enchanted pool ?
Since centuries you have woven together civilizations .
Clear yet silent you have witnessed our evolution .
From caves to structures of chrome glass and steel .
Your largesse and your boon
helped us to fine tune .
But , have you been given your due ?
Your hidden treasure has been delved into –
Groped and gouged out .
Unfold your stories, witnessed through the passage of time.
Let it surface from your innards.
Let your screams rent the air .
To wake us up from our stupor .
Let the stories trickle out
of our unjust treatment .
O enchanted one speak, speak out as never done before .
Loud and Clear !
You owe it to yourself
Conserve and Preserve
Hold yourself together
O silent one ! Speak, speak shout and Scream !
Only to be heard amidst the
nonsensical babel .
