‘Your Light’ | Poem by Sujjawal Ahmad

A silhouette of mighty hills I see out from my window
The colour of a mixture between crimson and indigo

The sun peeks again and again through the clouds
As if playing hide and seek with the ground

The day goes on and the sun turns its pathway
And shades of orange cast on sky a dazzling array

The rustle of leaves with evening breeze,
Brushes through the air as it passes by;

The stars like hovering lanterns cover the sky
From near and younger children sing with joy

And I sit by the window to watch the aura of change in colours
Then you come with the Light, all celestial and pure

Once through one side then through the other
The scent of your presence pervades through the air

Is it a treatment or kind of therapy?
Is all this real or ethereal?

My eyes closed, my face with wreathless brow
Feel your presence, and my third eye begins to glow

Satan may play tact to bewilder me from the Right
But I know only man without recognition is without Light.

Sujjawal writes on philosophy, and cosmology. In his teenage, he continued to aspire reconciliation between faith and reason, and this journey finally ended up finding answers in the works of the great Ismaili Muslim philosophers imbibed with gnostic wisdom. His particular area of interest focuses on how to relate to a theological “narrative of creation” to the concepts of cosmology as presented in classical theism. With his background in science and his interest in Philosophy he has struggled much, in his personal journey, to reconcile faith with science, and continues to develop and share his understanding about the nature of reality.
