Meditating in the stillness of time
Chants and chimes with serene tunes
I opened my gratified eyes
To the whisper of a man
Standing beside me in flesh and soul
“I am the one you seek in temples and meditations.
I am the God. I will now be your companion day and night.”
Awestruck I stood gazing at my look alike.
“You trekked miles to seek me on mountains, air and sky.
You locked me in scriptures and idols.”
I was at unease to be his mate.
“How would I smokescreen so many sins?
How would I indulge in avarice, lust and greed?”
I ran to flee but he came with me.
“You read God is everywhere and in you, but you disbelieved.
You wanted to always bargain my presence and absence.”
I stood like a deer in the headlights.
“You weaved the notions to your convenience.
I was Omnipresent for a kind and rare for unkind deeds.
Don’t delve into abstracts of belief and faith.
Shed the blocks of double life.”
Belatedly I learnt to seek Him in not outside.
