River Ganges


deep within

his tawny matted locks

adorned with

a perfect crescent moon,

her epic journey


ancestors belonging

to a great lineage,


by her whimsical flow

as millions take

soul-stirring dips

in her crystal-like

icy waters,

they worship her

with melodic hymns,

and decorated lamps

every step of the way
