Kashi – An Ode!

A city that intrigues me often
For it's a living paradox...
Where alone life is explained
Turning one full circle;

On one end beams life
With joy and glory
While the other,
Emanates the absolute truth...
In between is the vast Ganges,
That symbolizes our life
Into which we bathe
Rinse our sins,
Watch the dead left half-burned
Reminding death to be supreme

You watch the form burning in the pyre,
Warmth escaping,
Yet pierces us
Reminding us
Gulping the lifeless truth

Glistened by the red sun in the morning
Evenings blaze
While the orange-red haze
Gulp the wood
It's the city of lights
A eulogy
That metamorphizes the cycle of life

It welcomes death with open arms
And celebrates it...
Life is cherished here too
A trance of its vividness
A city,
Everything and nothing
Pure and supine!
Life and death fall in love where,
Just like the river and the earth meets the sky!!!
