Pongal


Festivals again.
Harvest of paddy
marks the season.

Rejoice with gratefulness
being the concept
stays vivacious.

The sun peeps
into the courtyards
as the ritual commences.

Elaborate drawings
Kolams, beautify the floors,
enhance the stoves and pots.

To the blowing of conch
the lady of the house
places the pot on the stove.

Beautiful! the fuming milk
on the shining red glow 
looks picturesque. 

The entire household
throng to see the ritual.
Divinity overwhelms.

Pongal the festival as known,
documents gratitude.
The celebrations
take place to honour God,
