Innocence
by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick
Bookmark and Share
 
On a Sunday morning
at 7 O'clock
when the cool breeze
was blowing from the north,
my son poured a copper pot of water
on a basil plant to say his prayers;
 
Standing behind
I said to my grandson,
'Let us pray too, my dear.'
The two-year old, tiny tot,
took me by a storm -
knelt down to touch the ground
by his little forehead
that spread over the three worlds!
 
Tears rolling down my cheeks,
in my mind I could see
the sun god in crimson robes
coming down to the earth
to bless the innocent...

When I bent down
to pick up the flower-like lad
a voice within me I heard,
'If there be a god,
can it be another other than what you hold!'

Poem Comment Lovely read; only, in the last line, which does unnecessarily extend itself losing both grammar and concision, may I suggest:

can it be other than what you hold!

Poem Comment Thank you, Rupradha for your appreciation. It is a real scene with our grandchild conveying his 'pranam' to sungod on May 07, 2011.
