Who Is The Great? - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

A colorless ray HE made…
And made colors all
From ultra violet to infra red
Flowers reflect them all

A sperm and ovum HE made
Specimens numerous now parade!

Blacks and Whites
Blondes and Redheads
Brunettes and Black-heads
The bald blue-eyed
Thick and thin-haired
Thick-headed and wise:
HE reflects in them all…

HE made them believe
Believe in Him in different calls!

Now tell me, who is the Greatest of all?
You me or anybody else here,
Or these deemed greats,
Or HE who made these all?

    'HE who made these all' -
    the Creator, The Sustainer and the Destroyer.
    Thanks, Kesav. An inspiring writing.

    Sir,
    You have well estiblished through this poem the greatness of God. He, Who made all colors, yet embedded them all in one color, 'White'; He Who made seven
    'swaras', yet embedded them in one Ohm..........He is the Greatest of all. A great poem this is Sir.

    yes, I agree. And most certainly agree with what Alf have said below.What color is God's skin? is it black, brown, yellow, white? WE'RE THE SAME in the good Lord's sight. (Report)Reply

    yes, true.
    just feel the HIM in all....no need to call him names, and ofcourse, HE being without attributes, question of epithets doesn't arise at all.
    loved the poem sir, poetic and inspiring.
    thank you.

    First, thanks many times for this heart felt poem....the most disheartening matter and delicate subject to write as well...you have done a great answering poem...apartheid or racism...it's a tool of the lawless beings to survive....ph is a fine example holding us all united...time and trend has changed a lot to make the world one in universal harmony...we are all one to enjoy unity alone....hope for the best ever....thanks again for your good efforts....God is great (Report)Reply

    A very meaningful write Kesav, greatness is certainly not a product of skin colour, race or any other physical attributes- If only we could all promote the idea of universal brotherhood through our own poetry and the way we look upon the work of other poets...this site would be a place of great empathy and learning..10 (Report)Reply

    The beauty of this site is that we come from so many different countries with different customs and different physical appearances and skin color. Yet we unite through poetry. Just as music is the universal language of the world, lets hope we can include poetry and work with positive energy and not negative energy. There is one great life force that links us as one. If poets feel superior this is their problem and they should try to work through it. Thanks for your poem Kesav as it is so enlightening and spiritual.....love Karin (Report)Reply
