A Prayer

 
We humbly welcome you Oh Gajanana, with gaiety and cheer!
Besides your usual, we seek some extra blessings this year!
Oh Ganesha, bless those who terrorise with some good sense
To refrain from the mayhem they’ve already unleashed immense,
And help us to live in peace without any insecurity or fear!
 
Celebrations – Bliss!
 
rain pours ceaselessly
as elephant god arrives
and boys dance entranced
 
cymbals and drum beats
build up a crescendo
Ganesha smiles on

Comment A beautiful string of thoughts, a sincere prayer...it is bound to be heard Padmaja!

The peaceful days are coming...we will all live to see the opening up of doors and windows, the throwing away of vulgar excesses, and the bringing in of what all of us have...love.

Keep on writing.

Best regards,
