The Word of God

Updated on February 16, 2020
Harishprasad profile image

Harish Mamgain is fond of the craft of writing. He loves poetry.



He is infinite and can't be discerned. He can't be fathomed by mortals. He is Beyond all words, ever devised by men. Man glorifies Him and receives all boons. Man is so eager to catch the space, as if to flow the river back to the source. But God knows how far the bird can fly. As per Hindu scriptures, Almighty, the most Gracious ever, creates Aakashvani ( sound in the sky ). He tells man His commandments all clear. Aakashvani is a sound or word of God. It is heard so loud and clear in the heavens. It is stern, like a warning, thundering all hearts. Man has no option except to comply when heard. This poem speaks about voice of God.

The Word of God

Follow my words as I command,

For you'll shudder to hear the truth,

Truth is an subtle and roaring ocean,

Your tiny canoe can't find the shore.

Smug of intelligence a little you have,

Indulge you all in insidious actions,

Uprooting plantations, finishing lives,

Don't you ever fear my hard scepter ?

Do you reflect on the evanescent time,

And all stars, the sun, and the Moon,

They shine so that you can live on,

My glance, they engulf a universe ?

When you rise in love of all beings,

I pour out insight and wisdom in you,

You taste all bliss and tame power,

The wind listens, obeys the ocean.

Life-Afterlife both I create for beings,

I want you to be a privy to all this,

To raise incessant your worth in life,

And climb faster the ladder up to Me.

You've caused lesions in the nature,

Think hard in the bottom of your soul,

When the stones and trees invoke me,

Nothing in the world can remain static.

See, how I have kept all things intact,

Subtle look though the fibers woven,

Deem your life too a blissful bondage,

Do you see the stable constellations ?

Do you need every time a word of God ?

Hear the billowing wind, listen to trees,

When you perfect hearing, listen truth,

Each fleeting moment utters my word.

      Your words are so precious to me. Audrey, I deem preservation of nature as a real worship of God and hence these words. Thanks for your support and kind words.

      I'm glad to have received your comments on this hub. Cris, we have inherited a wonderful world but what we are bent on turning it out. We have twisted everything and interfered with the things of nature too much. Due to our scant regard for mother nature, all other creatures and even plants and rivers are distressed. My friend, " Aakashvani " is a Hindi word comprising of two words, aakash ( sky ) and vani ( speech ). Thanks for your visit, appreciating this poem and presenting such kind comments.

      I've learned a new word today: "Aakashvani" and it's a beautiful word. Thank you.

      Lovely hub and images.

      You are a lover of nature and care for this wonderful planet inhabited by so myriad beings including us. Our prayers should start from caring for mother nature who cheerfully gives so many bounties to us. If we care for beings and things present in this world, God will take care of us. John, thanks for your kind visit, appreciating the poem and your very wise comments.

      Wonderful hub Harishprasad, we should all take more notice of nature and what God has created around us. Mankind is destroying the world God created for us to live in without really caring. Your hub helps remind us what is important.

      Beautiful thoughts and so meaningful!

      Akashvani-- the most appropriate word you have selected for this poem's title.

      Devika, I'm glad that you liked this poem. Every being and even plants are all in sync with the nature and live their lives cheerfully whereas man is intent on subverting and interfering with the laws of nature. I just pondered this fact of life. Thanks for your visit, your kind comments and support as always.

      Faith, we find a mention of aakashvani or word of God heard in the sky in the ancient texts. A stray thought occurred to me what would be word of God in the present times and these words came to my mind. Your beautiful comments have made my day. Thank you very much and all peace.

      Kevin, I just love your insightful comments that speak so much in a few words. You are right, mother nature speaks silently all the truths we are desirous of knowing in this world. Thanks a lot for your kind visit, appreciating the poem and your wonderful comments.

      How true, Harishprasad, we have to watch and listen closely to every bit of nature and the world around us in order to properly understand and hear God. I believe that you have written it clearly in this poem. I instantly voted it up and pinned it.

      If a great pastor like you approves even a little bit of it, I think it has some worth. I just imagined what would be word of God in the present scenario created by human ? Thanks, Eric for your kind visit, reading and kind comments.

      I was having a wonderful visual day. I read this and closed my eyes and heard a boy, a bee and some birds. And then I heard the breeze -- no not in the trees or leaves just in the being of the breeze.

      Thank you for that is all the sermon I need today.
