C. P. Sharma

God! ! ! !

God is One,
He is the Truth.

He manifests in Nature:
In diverse sounds,
in myriad forms:

The birds from the sky
sing His praise,
In hedges the wailful
sound of gnats,
In waters the squeking
of fish tail,
In oceans the sonar
of the whale.

In innocent look
of the deer in graze,
The fear in tiger’s
eyes that blaze,
Majesty in the
elephant’s walk,
Timidity in frog’s
hidden croak.

On the mountains
Sages in trance,
Fun and frolic
in flowery dance,
By the riverside
eternity glance,
resurging into
the sea.

Millions of suns
and moons
in Him shine,
Innumerable stars
in them fly high,
Immeasurable
are their skies,
In unfathomable
caves of oceans
He lives,
Unseen from there
the tapestries He weaves.

Timeless is
His existence,
Un-begotten is
His being,
Self-existent is
His substance,
The Guru is
His cradle,
Him in Guru’s Grace
you seek.

Note: The first and the last verse are inspired by the proem (Mool Mantra) of Sri Guru Granth Sahibji

    Breathtaking, enchanting poem. God is everywhere, especially closest to us and He Loves us all so much. A very wise poem, absolutely and with such beauty, love and care created. So many things mentioned, He is The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, the Three Divinity. I have enjoyed your most beautiful Tribute of God. He is The Truth.

    The same life force or consciouness runs through all creatures, mountains, valleys, seas and oceans. All things bright and beautiful, along with love make up our togetherness, our Oneness, our God. 10/10 Bob

    God truly is in all nature and you have expressed this well. I indeed loved the first and last verses of this piece - - ' God is a Spirit and those who love Him must love in spirit and truth' - - a quote from the greatest of gurus - - the Christ..... thank you for a poem so full of wisdom........ best wishes....Fay.
