The Great River

It’s almost as if the Ganges ceases to flow
when the bright burning pyre drifts,
embers scatter on the breeze like fireflies,
and chants and prayers fill the air with the drone of human voices,
but it is illusion, for the great river never stops—
the goddess Kali will not pause
even for the saintliest of men.
