My Indian Girls..

Thinking of the children all day long,
Since the day they were born,
They carry them in their heart’s barn,
The birth chart of them clutch in their arms
Visiting the matrimonial website for the matches,
Old Indian parents are left alone with no brokers,
Perplexed are their memories at this juncture,
When their kids are working as the adventurers,
The lonely parents walk alone as the teary pictures,
Hopeful of getting someone, who is sanctioned,
In the ten important matches prescribed,
Based on the three categories of saintly,
Human and giant species, having the characters,
Of flora and fauna, longevity of their life and marriage,
Whether they have the chemistry to each other,
All decided and marked in our birth charts,
To name this Hindu civilization, one of the oldest of all,
In which unmarried my Indian girls are
still under the care of their fathers.

    well said aswath....i feel more than the matching of horoscopes, the hearts should match, the eyes should meet n the path should be one, the journey of life becomes smoother on its own, when the couple sing the same song. a nice poem mam! (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
