Kasi (8)

Ghats, narrow lanes, sand, temples, river:
Images that flash, in all presentations
Consistently close to “always”; combinations
Of all or some of the elements present ever
In pictures of Kasi, the city of light eternal.
And Kasi conforms to, is stuck with what’s given,
Presented to all as Kasi true, real.
Yes Kasi is all, yet something internal
Is missed essentially in simplification.
The spirit, the life, the transience present ever;
The sorrows, the joys, the filth of the flowers,
And all that’s seen or not, at all hours,
In city simplified, made easy. Multifaceted? Never.
Simple city understandable – post-esentialization.
