The Exotic East.


exotic eastExotic lands of the east

densely occupied and full of dust

hold your breath otherwise

be the grandeur of these places

awe-inspiring architecture

amazing culture  and literature

the piety and divinity that surrounds

the grace and poise of the religion

the affable and friendly  people

all hold your breath for a while

as you get diffused in the atmosphere

a few unwanted elements surface all through

the cleanliness and the infrastructure

prompt you to sniff and scorn for a time

sure in a way the idealism that wraps  the entire

bewilders and bewitches you on the whole

not improper to say that east is gorgeous

no wonder the sun rises in the east.

Devotion—- An Enormous Strength.


Hands folded he  prays

one stands and chants

the other kneels down

one another falls prostrates

each one does it in his own way

expressing his faith and devotion

piety is the base behind

with closed eyes and ardent feel

with  an enormous fervour he prays

devotion is that which comprises

faith and love, belief and trust

take him to  the realm of peace

where his mind rests without any  trouble

transcends into a place of bliss

forgets his turmoil for a while

communes with the Almighty.

If that be the devotion in a kind

where one loses himself  straight

the other form is the liking with all sincerity

not on work, but on people too

an attachment towards them with  respect

a feel could never be explained

a love steady and strong.

The Animated Fervour.


Folding the hands he prays to God.
Kneeling down he bows to God.
Chanting mantras he invokes God.
and gradually merges with God

He goes round the shrine.
He goes on till he completes nine.
He prostrates before God in line.
and slowly diffusesDandavats into the environ fine.

This has been his routine for years.
Praying, he feels, dispels fear.
He thinks God has come near.
and ecstatically revels in cheer.

Is this piety steadfast and real?
A question that demands a trial.
It would be so when things are ideal.
It would be not so in the face of an ordeal.

The presumptions are track proven.
Fortunes take him to haven.
Distress makes him a raven.
Peace be with you. Amen!
