Devotion – India


Temple dancers shadow smoke,

pierce woven sunlight.

Blessings balance fierce tongues:

worship spills saffron song.

Priests prepare flowers and cloth.

Fresh flowers and food are brought.

Clanging, shouting, dark and light,

sweet sandalwood, incense burnt.

Tradition wrapped crowds chase

autumn silver throne.

Lord Shiva and Parvati are put to bed.

    • Everyone I met in Southern India I really liked. The country seemed to be full of very nice kind people. I thought at the time it was because of your tradition. It is nice to meet you. Thank you for looking at my blog. My red bag is right here at my feet!
