Eating And Digesting - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

I am eating food
By chewing
By swallowing
By sucking
By licking.

You are digesting my food
By your power and
Nourishing my body
By residing in my heart
And exhaling air
By residing in anus
And inhaling air
By residing in navel
And circulating the essence
By abiding in the throat
And separating the solid and liquid
By abiding in whole of the body
And shrinking and expanding the body
By belching by shutting and opening eyes
By sneezing by yawning.

My dear, You abide in my body
Even after my death
And puffs out my dead body
I am here to know
You are worth knowing.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

If we are here to know something, we should try to know Him.Almighty God is worth knowing
