I have not posted much on my blog for quite some time now to avoid the madness that the country is experiencing at present clouding my thought process and introduce undue negativity in my writing. However I had a sinking feeling that rust may have set in due to the prolonged non-use. I am not even sure if the piece below can be called a poem or not. I tried to stay away from politics as much as possible, so there is nothing political in the post. However readers beware, it has my other favorite topic, religion. So if you feel that you may be offended, stop here. I shall understand.
Bidding good bye to the night, the moon asked the rising sun,
What’s your religion, do you identify as Hindu, Jewish, Buddhist, Christian or Mussalman?
Painting the dawn sky red, the rising sun brightly replied,
I have but one and only one religion, that is to spread warmth and light.
From the beginning of time I shone my light on the earth without malice,
All the sages and seers, Zarathustra, Moses, Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad, all seen the light.
I do not discriminate, Vatican to Mecca, Jerusalem to Ayodhya,I spread the same light,
Every corner of the earth, everything I touch, I nurture without any divide.
Why suddenly is this question of religion, what are you trying to imply,
Now that humans trying to colonize you, are you afraid of being maligned?
Have you not noticed everything that nature has provided are free, no religions attached,
The light, wind, water, sound, all forces of nature, even pandemics, are unbiased.
Nature is magnanimous, nature is free, not bound by any religious boundaries,
Alas, so seems human ignorance that try to label the free supreme energy.
