A Village Temple Poem by Ravi Panamanna

A Village Temple

Rating: 5.0

Sprawling grounds
The morning mist
A banyan tree
And the resting wind

Ringing bells
Blissful strike
Traditional chants
An energizing feel

Lighted lamps
A pleasing sight
Devotional songs
A prayful world

Vintage structure
A timeless boon
Garlanded deity
Deepening springs

The sandal paste
The presence of life.
Tulsi Teerth*
A refreshing experience

The looming silence
The chirping birds
The village air
Solemn notes

Here are the very roots
Life opens her wings.
These are spaceless moments
Man drifts to his own womb.

Tulsi Teerth* - The water with Tulsi leaves. Actually, this serves as a herbal medicine. The concept of a temple really takes care of man's bodily and mental needs in every way. What we should need is a proper perception of these ideas.

'Here are the very roots / Life opens her wings. / These are spaceless moments / Man drifts to his own womb.' It is true, a temple is a place, where one can meditate undisturbed to find inner peace. An insightful piece.
