Navaratri Day 7: The Destroyer

Raja Ravi Varma via Wikimedia Commons

When the blood of the demon falls to the ground
demons spring from each drop. Innumerable,
they threaten to overwhelm the world.
Black as the infinite night Kaalaratri comes.
She strikes the blow,
she eats the demons,
she drinks the blood.
When only one is left
she drains him dry
and he tastes the final dissolution.
Only she is left,
her tongue red with blood.
She is all there is.
Kaalaratri protect us
Kaalaratri enlighten us
Kaalaratri devour us
until only you remain.

Om Devi Kaalaratriyai Namah.
