Ode To The God Of Light. - Poem by Chaitanya Deshpande

O god of light
Cause of life
This all is because of you
The bright and darks
The shorts and longs
And days and nights too

Many thousand yellows
Thousand blues and
Reds are infinite
A father of colours
Loving all his children
How beauteous is day sight.

With billion hands of rays
You create mysterious days
The soft December shawls
At once get burn in Mays

At once this difference placed
I wonder who is behind
O You. You, just You.
None other I can find

Now the tired wings heading nests,
Long serving day for new little guests
Yellowish, hectic and brownish west
The lord of shades serving the best!
I behold that fiery orange beauty
He too is ending his day’s duty
By serving the half
The gift of night
For giving the half
A new day, bright

I hope in my life evening,
You power me for fearless sing
As you serve all the joy of shades
At my end, I may also bring.

And in next life as a next day
I know nothing but I can pray
That I may rose a glorious new
Flourishing, brightening, lightning as You.

When I look towards the world
Keeping you in mind… O Sun!
Everything seen by me
You make you preserve and you burn.

The foam frilled waves,
The deep dark caves,
The success smiles and
Failure weeps
The music of dawn
The evening song
The huge sky kissing,
Mountain tips.

The joy of love
The cry of death
The strong atheism
And super-strong faith

Every satisfaction and every pain
Every fragment of every grain
Every dropp of falling rain and
Every word from poetic brain

All belong to you.
My heart, My mind,
My life
My soul… Too
