Ethereal Embrace

Oh river of cosmos, eternal, immortal dignity! Your ethereal flow bears the fruit of progeny, you create, preserve, destroy, rebuild transient ages in the timeless loop of universe. Flickering amber lamp of life you light, celestial powers in your gracious bosom reside. You are the empress above the heavenly summit dwelling on Earth's abode manifested in each being, you nurture generations with motherly lullabies you bend the bows of evil with your ferocious sword. Oh Goddess! Torrents of wisdom and prosperity you pour from sparkling oceans to azure twilight, you drench with love this agitated world when hope flutters in mists of consciousness. Your selfless exuberance spreads sheltered arms of forgiveness, haloed glittering incarnations of virtue for us prevailing as Radha, Sita, Lakshmi, Mary, Durga, Kali, Athena, for whom civilizations and Gods bow in ecstasy of salvation, your greatness supreme permeates blending molecules. Oh woman! Yet you embrace sacrifice and agony for humans while your gossamer veil cuddles them with the elixir of compassion. **Poet's Note: In Rigveda 10.125 verses, the Goddess Shakti is described as the supreme power of all cosmos that creates, sustains and rebirths the universe and Gods. Similar explanation for feminine divinity has been given by Lord Krishna in the Bhagwad Gita. The wonder of humanity is that such manifestations occur in other religions too.** June 1st, 2020 BRIAN'S SELECT 8,any form,any theme Poetry Contest Sponsor: Brian Strand ~Winner: Honorable Mention

The nurture, compassion, sacrifice, embrace, fruitfulness, and power of the feminine is so aptly captured in your deep words, poetess Aditi! Your poetic talents are put to good use over and over with regards to your beliefs. "Oh river of cosmos, eternal, immortal dignity". I have more thoughts, which I have sent you in a Soupmail. Be blessed, my friend ~ John

Ode to woman, the Goddess--they are all immortal..more so in the verses of your poem, Aditi. Amazing how faith is similar in the eyes of believers in every religion.

That's the most interesting part about all religions, they pretty much teach the same things in their own way. Thank you for appreciating Vijay :)
