I Searched You - Poem by ramesh rai

I searched you in Mosque, Church,
temple, Gurudwara, and at so many places
where you are being chanted
in various names of God or
any powerful spirit of nature

I found solace and peace
for the time being
but when I returned to my hermitage
disappointment starred me

I sat on meditation
chanted your various names, but still
disappointment followed me

So, I came out beneath the open sky
in the field, then
I saw you ploughing field
sowing seeds of life
without caring sun and rain
for creation of a new life
for survival of the existing life

I saw you in blooming flowers
without caring sun, rain, thunder and storms
spreading thy fragrance,
pleasing all passers by
I saw you being ripen with fruits and corns
for nourishment of all lives

I saw you making roads
hugging sun, rain and bitter cold
in your bosom, for all the travelers of the world
making them to reach
to the goal of their lives

I saw you, building mansion
in irrespective of seasons for comfort of lives
self residing under the roof of thousand ventilation
and rejoicing the natural phenomenon of life

I saw you in whore lane
selling her body, for survival of her life
and survival of lives of dependent
and of her kids

I saw you in whore lane
entertaining her customers
to rejoice the fun of life

I saw you flying in open sky
chirping the song of freedom
choosing the grains in the field
for amusement of natural life.

I saw you in shambles
sacrificing the life of cattle
being slaughtered brutally
for making delicious dish
to rejoice the fun of life

I saw you in the fragrance
of thy sweat coming out
due to days' toil

I saw you in changing season of life

I saw you giving rain and light

I saw you in sky, water, in land

I saw you
evolving for creation of new life
for a new fuller life and its decay.

    God is everywhere, and in everything. He is in all of His creation. So few people can see this. Your poem expresses this beautifully.

    So nice... The god is everywhere. You may call him Brahma or anything else but it scatters its boon all over the world in same manner. The imagery of bringing the whore under the same consoling powers of God makes it special. How can the sinners be left out for they also to be attended the dooms day? (Report) Reply

    A beautiful sentiment of the difference between religion and God, for man created religion thus it divides, judges, damns, and even hates for what is war but a manifestation of hate. Whereas, God simply creates, loves, forgives, redeems, and exaults lifting spirit and soul to a higher consciousness. Great write, thank you. (Report) Reply

    You've captured reality - God (IT) - is everywhere and in all things all the time and eternally. A beautiful write - thanks for sharing!

    A lot of the poetry flowing through me captures the same theme, the same truth.

    Cheers & keep on channeling! (Report) Reply

    Enchanting and enlightening. Sensible in many ways tough would have liked to felt more mystery and god-like intensity in this poem. The ideas and visualization of God brings about so much mystery from the unknown. Overall, nicely done. (Report) Reply
