Wrapped in light



(441)  Purva arunacale tumi jabe esechile

When You appeared on eastern horizon,
You lifted Earth's black, overcast night.
Lilies sang, getting Your rays of light;
And sweetness blossomed on water and land.

Thereafter did not remain any gloomy lamentation—
The drought was over; assorted greenery came out.
Gently wrapped in light, atoms and molecules roll about;
And so under blue sky began the annals[1] of Creation.

Around the feet of the One, with mantra of only the One,
In rhythm and song everyone makes haste in same embrace.

  1. Another metaphorical and educative account of Creation.
