ABANDONED GODS

Some worship only the cross

With an absent Christ

Some worship only the head 

with an absent deity 

Some worship only the river 

Ignoring her end in the ocean 

I worship the tree sheltering abandoned Gods.

 

{ In India , the statue of a God should not have any defect

It is considered inauspicious to worship a damaged God. 

Hence damaged gods are abandoned below a tree in front 

of the temple. No one worships those Gods. Nor the tree.}
