Ayyanar Again

Back in the portals
of Ayyanar temple
with baskets lining
on the entry, the rituals
begin. devotion permeates.

A ceremony modest,
the priests by heredity
with no formal education,
conduct the puja.

Year after year
the community
gathers for prayers
a belief since unknown.

The day long worship,
goes with a spectrum,
provides solace and
peace to the clan.

The remote avenue
abuzz with life
in the evening
resumes the silence.

Ayyanar goes to sleep
after an hectic activity.
A smile on his face
indicates a jubilant year ahead,
