Ganesha [Free Verse]

Ganesha:
Obstacles removed
&
Good luck brought

All yields to the
elephantine forehead
&
elephantine learning

Seemingly immovable
when seated,
but I've seen you swing;
hoisted by a crane
& 
dangled out over the water

But the pendulum arc was 
short 
&
stiff
&
precarious:
as if it might flip the crane --

every remover of obstacles 
must leave a detritus of
past obstacles in its wake
