The Reclining Deityi - Poem by sreelekha premjit

Majestic
reclining in the lap of Anantha
he lay
lotus eyes benign
Kaveri at his feet
the majestic Vishnu
huge mammoth like
wearing a blisssome smile
the lord of the universe
and the praja
in the town of
Srirangapatana
the city of Srirangam
bowed their heads
in reverence
in respect
in adoration
and the clang of temple bells
the fragrance of incense sticks burning
filled the air
and out he came
riding on the shoulders of his devotees
borne with dignity
on a survey of what is his
his abode
to the tune of music
to the beating drums
to the chanting of mantras
tears of joy and sorrow
of exaltation
of oneness
overpowered
in utter silence they stood
breaking into cries
hey! Vishnu! hey Vishnu
