(1) Mukteshwar Temple - A Responsorial Psalm

The test of time
The taste of immortality
Though Anachronistically incongruous -
A monumental testament
To our past capabilities
Mocking and challenging
Our technological superiority
And sense of aesthetics.
Wafting in an aura of history
From a remote and intangible past,
This masterpiece, has engraved on its exterior,
Painstaking attention to detail
And an unquenchable hunger for perfection
While remembering those master craftsman,
It is time to sit down and take stock
Of what we have gained
And what we have lost

Leonard, I have just googled some images of your Mukteshwar Temple and am overwhelmed by its intricacy and ancient beauty. I also read that Mukteshwar means 'The Lord who bestows freedom through yoga'. No wonder it appeals to me so much. Your poem certainly does justice to your magnificent subject. An inspiring work which poses profound questions about value and perfection. love, Allie xxxx
