Theme: Values

Immersion!



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

Canopy man-made
decorated
her resplendent idol
ornamented, golden-attired,
lots of fun and joy-
enjoyment
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,
h
uman and spiritual values
lie drowned deep,
not to surface in our life?
Anger, greed, jealousy, injustice,
cruelty and ego
 thrive 
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.
