Fervent Devotion

Amidst 
The incantation
Of esoteric mantras
Each deity
At home is
Meticulously bathed 
With milk and honey,
Then dressed in 
Silk garments 
And finally offered
A platter of fruits 
And flowers.

This is no ordinary ritual

But a
Selfless act
Of fervent devotion
Which
Intensifies 
A seeker's love,
For the conscious
Being within.

one of the best poems I have read! the rhythm and the build up is superb
The Strong metaphor, this poem is immolating the secrets of thoughts.
