Travel India Poem - First Sight Of The Ganges At Vanarasi

the first sight of the ganges
i walk the ghats with names of gods
shiva, vishnu, brahma, hanuman,
sadhus put thick white powder on my forehead
three lines to denote the shiva sect
the lingams, oh the man told me
not to walk into the sacred ring
drawn with white chalk
it is the realm of the divine
as far as he is concerned
