Who by Sri Aurobindo

A friend recently introduced me to the poems of Aurobindo Ghosh. They are beautiful. Here is one called Who?

In the blue of the sky, in the green of the forest
Who's is the hand that has painted the globe
When the winds were asleep, in the womb of the ether
Who was it who aroused them and bathed them to glow
He is lost in the the cavern of nature
In the luminous net of the stars He is caught
In the strength of a the beauty of a woman
In the laugh of a the blush of a girl
The hand that sends Jupiter spinning through heaven
Spends all its cunning to fashion a curl.
These are His works, His ways and His shadows
But where is He then...
By what name is He known?
Is He Brahma?Or Vishnu?
A man or a woman?
Bodied or bodiless?
Twin or alone?

Gorgeous huh!
