The Weave of Art and Divnity

The temple bell chimes,
the chant of slokas begins,
the dais is all set
speeches come forth
music flows, school children
enact, poetic in a sense
enwrapped in a divine rhythm
mark the first day

The days that follow,
equally remarkable
keep us in a trance.
The intricate weave
of celestial and cultural
render an adorable charm.
Divinity seamlessly fuses
with literature, drama
and music.

Enrapatured the people
enjoy the exuberance.
An extravaganza aesthetic,
ethical  is confined to dignity.
Discipline to the anvil,
the nine day festival,
winds up with an expectation
That next year’s programs
would surpass this year’s.
