To embrace the All in All
is to have an appreciation
of Our Creator’s manifestations,
the heavenly bodies - suns, moons,
and stars plus unknown planets
Traversing the sky is phenomenal.
The trees, plants, oceans, rivers,
streams, mountains, hills and valleys
speak with their own language
while being buffeted by the wind.
So, are the seasons – spring,
summer, autumn, and winter
with their distinct moods.
At times, it’s serene, and glorious,
sometimes the earth is battered by hurricanes,
earthquakes, tsunamis, and forest fires.
But animals, reptiles, birds, and fishes
inhabit the land, air, and oceans.
They live, breed, and feed in this Reality.
This is the gift what nature provides.
People breathe fresh air, pick fruits,
feast on delicacies, drink refreshing water,
build cozy houses from sturdy trees,
and cook their meals with fire.
These manifestations are only a part
Of the Eternal Essence
that’s within, above, below, and around us.
Personalizing this Reality is a metaphor.
S/he’s omniscient, omnipresent,
Omnipotent, immanent, and transcendent
Words can’t adequately describe this entity.
This force is part of an all-encompassing nature
