Divinity in Stone

We pray to God in a form that makes us connect with the higher power in an easy manner. Idols made of stone are the most commonly seen in every temple or under a sacred tree or a siddh place. I chanced to witness this beautiful ganesha idol at a stone art workshop and it immediately caught my attention. A flow of bhakti bhaav poured out from deep inside, in the form of poetry.

The countenance of abundance,

But a stance of minimalism,

Your demeanor exhumes unbridled joy,

And a charm so serene,

I gaze in awe at your magnetism,

As I feel the divine aura,

Touch my mortal existence,

Bringing it a step closer,

To the reality of this life,

Yet obscuring its fullness,

Leaving room for bhakti to evolve,

With patience and purity.
