A Visit To Sankarankoil - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Whizzing breeze was moist..
In happy mood whirring thoughts
Got unkempt fluttering freakishly on my head
And I had to tuft them tight onto a vow often

Extra special, desirous my heart
This time on 'Independence Day'decisive
To perform 'archana' for my Mother only
To the Goddess, mother of my 'Mother Bharat'

Silly, selfish it sounds, 'bless me, bless me'
Sworn into Her domain selfless hereafter
So to be expiating hitherto wrong
Lub-dub-ing was my heart 'JaiHind, JaiHind'

A bulky welcome, straight into the precincts
We were pushed to find partly, partly
Dining, playing, gossipping, quarelling, roaming
Aloof also queuing to worship bulks and bulks

Somewhat a bridgeless, sober ambience ungodly
Evinced an emptiness alone a stir of indifference
Crushed in jostle habitual performing in urgency
Revelation..'God is untouchable ever'..yet diehard

Hurt heart fell before the flagmast wearied
Enigmatic..people or the creator..heaved a sigh
Got up to feel a fall of a rain droplet on me
Mahatma's tears...? JaiHind, JaiHind
