Theme: Values


She is a goddess
all powerful, almighty
a symbol of faith
of goodness,
of sacred reverence
above all a victory over evil.

Canopy man-made
her resplendent idol
ornamented, golden-attired,
lots of fun and joy-
to the full

a grand celebration
devotional songs echoing
the morning,

but in the dark night
‘Salacious’ dances thrill
and enthrall all.

With the idol immersed
faith, sanctity, virtues, reverences,
uman and spiritual values
lie drowned deep,
not to surface in our life?
Anger, greed, jealousy, injustice,
cruelty and ego
to rule over us;

forces of Evil rule within!

Comment So very true ... Forces of Evil rule within and difficult to emancipate from them . With Immersion of Idols let spiritual qualities sustain and not get drowned forever ...never to be surfaced...Excellent write up. Loved it.
