any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
"A piece of heaven on earthMade holy by a few drops of Amrita*"As the river, so the child. A mother holding a name--both one among millions. Amazing images. I see, I see.
A wonderful tribute! such lovely depiction in your verse :DLots of love,Sanaa
Respect for the life sustaining rivers in India is a trait that would be valuable in so many other countries where they are not valued in the same way.
this touches the spirit of everything that is. we are the beginning we are the end like a river to the oceangracias
Lovely... I can imagine all the lights on the Ganga ...surreal.
Such a touching poem and what better gift than a child...
Respect and gratitude for life given, "A piece of heaven on earth' - humble and kind way of being...
interesting paradox of the gift of moksha and the granting of the pilgrim's wish for a child - a divine divali poem
Oh so beautiful, entering the Ganga with your prayer, your daughter born a year later, the dream of her life............how amazing it must be, to enter the Ganges and feel cleansed.
Beautiful lines...Sumana. This is one place where I want to visit again n again. Those floating candle-lit cups look so breathtakingly beautiful bobbing on the serene waves... Esp during ganga aarti in the evening. Take care... May God give you strength. You were missed...Good to have you back. Shubho Bijoya.
Sumana, how wonderful that you were one who once sailed a candle-lit leaf boat in the Ganges. This must really have been an awe-inspiring experience. Lovely poem & lovely photo.
What a divine gift - the Ganga. And what a gift it bestowed on you. Lovely poem Sumana.
The Ganges, lifeline for many on its banks and the savior for its many pilgrims through the years.Truly a blessing for the faithfuls!Hank
Yay! a lovely tribute to the Ganges River: a sanctuary for believers!!! thanks for this week's motif. have a wonderful weekend.
Ancient and sacred wisdom!
Love this description and the beautiful photo.
I really enjoyed this trip to the Ganga ~ what a treat! Thank you x
Lovely! I have not participated in that ceremony, but I have taken a dip in her mighty bosom, and immersed myself completely. :)
Interesting poem... the Ganges being a goddess and a life force... like holy water granting your prayer for a daughter.
A wonderful poem, Sumana, making the holy, mighty Ganga friendly and approachable. There is a sadness in this poem too...
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
