A Hymn to the Light

Picture Courtesy: Goutham G. Varrier

Let there be Light.
Let there be Light 
on this Holy Shrine. 
The kind that pierces 
its walls benign. 
Let it break 
Let it make parts 
of a divided Divine. 

Let there be Light 
on this Holy Shrine. 
Let it,
cut across 
its pious dome
tear apart 
the Holy home. 

Let there be Light 
that cuts through 
this Holy Shrine.
And falls upon 
an insignificant human 
and upon 
his significant action.

Let there be Light,
such that 
there is day 
Nobody bows heads,
joins hands 
and stands still 
to pray.

Let there be Light 
on this holy shrine.
Let there be Light 
Let it Shine!
