MAMTA SEHGAL feels and sees God in the wonders of his exquisite creations
The plants, the trees, the clouds and the winds,
the day, the night, the summer and the spring,
sitting in solitude I ponder, how you have created so many different wonders.
Given so many different greens to the leaves,
how you have created them in varied weaves,
how you have created beautiful flowers with many colours and given them fragrance.
When I see the wind caressing the leaves
and the leaves playfully swirling in the air, I think about you.
When I see birds sitting on the highest branches,
playfully talking to each other, I feel you.
When I see the sunlight changing the colours of the leaves,
I perceive you.
When I see different hues of blue in the sky,
I feel you.
When I see the clusters of clouds mingling with each other,
I experience you.
Each day all the things around me remind me of your omnipresence.
Oh! my saviour, take me in your arms,
And fill me with your colours like you do with your other creations,
Caress me and take me into oblivion,
To be closer to you and to merge in you.
