The Chariot Design of The Konark Sun Temple

I think about the chariot of the Konark Sun Temple
Carved and chiselled out of stone,
The Chariot of the Sun-God
Drawn by imaginary white horses
And the bars within
Indicating Time and its duration,
The sunrise, the noontime and the sunset.

The Konark Sun Temple just like a chariot view
Of the view of the world,
The Sun-God coming in the morning
On the chariot drawn by white horses
And the golden sun falling upon
And radiating and glistening,
The world arising and awaking from sleep and inertia.

The temple on a chariot drawn by horses,
Sun-God seated upon
Or driving,
The decorated and embroidered chariot moving,
The sunlight falling upon,
Beaming with,
Radiating and glistening around,
The golden sunbeams,
Glistening rays dazzling.

The temple in a ratha design,
The Ratha of the Sun-God pulled by,
The Wheel Chariot of His
Carved with drawing and structures,
Gorgeously sculpted and sculptured
With the drawings of flora and funa,
Love, lust, devotion and royalty,
The court and courtiers and the devotees.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
