God - Poem by prabhakar bhatlekar

The old man pleasantly smiled
and introduced himself
'I'm God'
'Um...what you said? You...'
'I'm God' he was still smiling.
'Oh...well I like that. Anyway you-'
'I'm God'
'Ok- -you're God! Come in please! '
He came, sat on a sofa comfortably.
'Mr...God what can I do for you? '
'Nothing! '
'Ha, ha..' I looked
He asked smilingly
'How're you? '
'I'm fine Sir-God! '
He doesn't look crazy, I thought
'I'm not crazy' he said.
I was embarrassed
'See dear' he said
'God can't afford to be crazy'
'I'm sorry Sir...'
'Don't worry it's OK! '
'God is..I mean you're
always powerful'
' Not exactly, Human is powerful'
'Well, if they're blessed! '
'By whom? '
'By you, naturally! '
'No, they're blessed by themselves.
They're aware what's wrong and right!
In fact they don't need me'
' Can I prepare tea for you? '
'I don't drink tea'
'I'm really happy for you choosing
me to visit'
'Well I thought to meet someone- '
The telephone rang,
In a hushed tone I told
my friend at the other end
'Hey..you here? Just now am with God'
'Damn you-you're not serious as usual,
now listen..'
'Oh cone on am not lying'
'- oof, I'll call you later'
He cut the phone.
I turned and looked. God was not there.
My wife was looking at me questioningly!

    Great imagery narrated interestingly. Before leaving the spot, God uttered some wonderful words which are as meaningful as they are philosophic. I like the poem. Thanks. Already Reported Reply
