An Atheist Laments...
by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick
Bookmark and Share
 
After a short morning walk
and a bit of exercise
when I enter the little garden
to water the plants,
there is a moment of peace,
though neither the plants nor I
exchange a word, in silence we speak;

even an accomplished Wordsworth
once stood silent and just enjoyed the dance
of a host of daffodils on the side of a lake.

My little plants often smile
with a rose or a jasmine,
and the creepers lean on my shoulder
perhaps to say good morning or a simple thank you;

I can deny the presence of god
but can I ever deny
the presence of the unseen hand
that made these tender plants?
I love to touch the wet leaves
and wait every morning for a silent chat!
