God Next Door

Part I 

Creator of life,

I indifferently destroy too

I make you float and-

I rush through you;

I am everyone.

From emotional highs

To your blue,

From furrows

Up till the wind that flew;

I am everyplace.

To you son,

I would be tasteless

(Unfortunately) also devoid of odor

As I stride past, breathless.

I am everything


Part II

I suffice in arteries,

I power your cardiac batteries.

I am your head’s stability

Also find me deep,

Deep down in masticating-factories.

In rivers and seas,

Find me in Enceladus’ directories.

Sometimes amphibious-

I wander mountains,

At times through the trees.

I am Destin’s native “emerald

Be it the “red” Bondi herald,

Even when “bioluminescent” within Maldives,

I shore up colorless in styles-

Both pretty as well as dishevelled.


I am formless

Yet, I am every-color.


Still unsure of his prowess? Sprinkle a pinch of metallic sodium over and witness the dance of fury, for he is skilled enough to burn as well.

“May God be with us in bliss and sorrow alike.”

      1. Since I didn’t do pre-search on that bit, it’d probably be safe to term it a (modification of) limerick only. I would be glad if you enlighten me on that part, because one can never know everything. πŸ˜…πŸ˜„

      2. I’d say that the first part resembles a corrido, ‘d’ happens to be merely an addition to fine tune the first four-four line stanza. I’m unsure of the second part though.

      3. I got this finally.. yayy! Second part is a 5-line stanza modification to (4-liners) Persian ruba’i which goes by the scheme “aaxa” .. I hope the explanation fits the girth of your query. πŸ˜…
