Day 4 -The cursed flower

The irony of ideals from cosmos

Forbidding a fragrant flower

Being offered to the auspicious one

Yet used to enliven the soul and senses.

.

The fate of a cream-colored flower

Foredoomed by the supreme divinity

A very dear to Lord Shiva

Succumbed to deception betwixt wrangle.

.

Lord Vishnu coveted internal happiness

Lord Brahma, to eliminate the desires

A contention fueled up and arose between the deities

With Lord Shiva addressed as the arbiter.

.

Mahakala, appeared as Jyotirmaya Linga

Asked the ever-victorious Anantajeet and the Creator

To seek the beginning and end of Linga

With threads of hope the deities advanced.

.

Adeep, the Lord of Light doomed and foiled

Neared Jagadisha in obeisance

In the cloudy adobe, pure and ecstatic

Perceived Shiva as the Swaroopa of Brahmaand.

.

Ketaki flower, naïve and pleasant

Floated aimlessly in the carousel around Linga

Trideva persevered afore his ego

Solicited the bloom into bearing false witness.

The perjurer however had to pay a price

Shiva’s vexation cursed Lord Brahma

 Of not being worshipped in temples anymore

The floweret will not be used as worship to gods.

.

The love of Shiva for floret

Now turned into a disparaging disgrace

But as sunlight skimmed across universe

Pleads of Ketaki were contemplated.

.

The beautiful monsoon flower

Got back its praise and amour

Harmonize, sweet and silently buoyant

Although hinderances, Ketaki was joyful and pious afresh.
