THE SKY IS LIT AS THE GANGA FLOWS: DEV DEEPAWALI 2014

The sky is lit
With countless lamps
The soul shines bright
On the Ghats and its ramps
The water breathes the light
As the Ganga flows
The bliss weaves the night
As the evening bloom grows
It’s the day
When the Gods descend
And we all pray
In aesthetic accent
Beginning on a silent note
It’s getting younger
Spirited on the singing rote
The Diyas glow livelier
Millions souls converge
In Shiva’s Varanasi
The Gods lead us
On the Ganga Ghats of Kashi
It’s the Dev Deepawali sight
When the light scents earthly
Infusing a transcending delight
As the water glows heavenly
The sky is lit
As the Ganga flows
The Gods come to meet
In the wrap of rainbows..
