If God Asks Me

If God asks me
what do you want?

Certainly, I shall say
bestow me with the divine power
to create more and more
beautiful poems
that speaks the language
of all creatures
that expresses the mirth
of a blooming flower
that expresses the grief
of a withering flower
that expresses the pains and pleasures
of an ant working tough
for foster of baby ant
that expresses restless toils
of stars and planets
to keep the pace of nature
always in existence

If God asks me
about my requirement
i shall say
give me bread to feed my family
and to my friend and foe
who gave me love and lesson
give me shelter under your arms
and a sweet home to reside
under the roof of your divine soul

But must not i forget
to mention the names
who creates poem in praise of His divine glory and His infinite creation
despite of their destitute

And lo! my name be laid all the rest.

Amen

    Lovely poem. This is what every poet would want from God. It is a sobering experience when that creative power slips away from us. God gives and God takes. And it is certainly is satisfying to see others moving on that path spreading the joy of poetry.

    This poem utterly charmed me! ! ! Praises for speaking of the lowliest creatures of God's creation- -ants. You understand the importance of every creature which I have to admit I hadn't thought of the magnificence of ants before! These lines especially drew me- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -]

    Your poem is a beautiful, heartfelt prayer. Surely God heard you. What more can a poet dream of than to be heard by God in His kindness and beauty.
