The Hidden Hand

Hugeness of banyan the seed encapsules,
In the bud is flower’s pleasing scent encased,
Endowed with honey’s sweetness nectar rejoices,
In touch-me-not is nature’s shyness enwrapped,
Engrained in the reed is music rapturous,
As woman’s mystique in genes is enshrined.

It’s the gentle, magical touch of Yours
That unleashes the essence of life hidden.
Where is the need, my Lord,
To conjure you in any other vision?
