Celebrating Success

The sound of the Drum beats; the Brass Plate beatings,
The tinkering of the Bells, the Chants up in the air-
The Coconut and the Mango Leaves Urn,
The Smoke Dancers waiting for their turn..
The croon of the Conch Blows; the Flower offerings,
To the Divine Goddess; the Insuperable..
Makes me ponder, as she prepares to Leave,
When would it be time for me to proceed heavenwards..?

    Seems like a wonderful homage to a goddess and her day. Which one so I can look her up and read about her?
