Unknown riches

Perhaps your
Old word-maker-mind
Nods without knowing to a
Goddess; you offer
A gift, and Devi’s divine
Attends you throughout your life.

During a fit of silliness today, a student blurted out the word ‘pongala.’ When I asked what it meant, I was told it was just made up. Out of curiosity, I checked the Internet. It’s a Hindu religious festival.
