Enhance - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

The light emanating
from the electric bulb
appears to be its own.

One bulb emanates
more light
Another one emanates
less light.

It depends upon its capacity.

But the point of
generation for both
is only one and the same.

As long there is
generation of electricity
both the bulbs emanate light
each according to its own capacity.

When we incline towards God
His Nature which is permanent
will exude through us
according to our capacity.

God is the generator
in his stature
and we are the ones
who reflect light
according to our capacity.

Let us enhance our capacity
to reflect more of His Nature!
