Those Loveable Chain Of Pearls! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Saw a couple sitting on the road side
On their way to pilgrimage towards the temple.
With a small baby playing in their arms.

A person selling an artificial pearls of
chains went passing by....
The husband just counted the
Few coins he was left with.
He bought the chain with few coins.
So delighted he was when he
Put the necklace around his beloved's neck.

One can definitely see the love in his eyes for his beloved,
She was looking lovely shy too.

Cost of pearls didn't matter,
But with the love he brought her mattered much.
This necklace may be worth of few pennies.
But this was the priceless movement
which made the necklace priceless.

    An artificial pearl necklace bright
    But real warm hands of love at that
    Which put them on her neck so light
    And they turned priceless in the act...............

    A wonderful poem on a simple yet profound act of love. (Report) Reply

    I was travelling with my wife. she was wearing glittering ornament in her neck and year. I got afraid for few moment i was perplexed but did not dare to say when she purchased and why she was wearing. but she could realise the moment, assured me not to be worrier because all were imitations. I thought she is more clever. But after all it was risk. (Report) Reply

    ......The price of gift matters the least when its given with heart, joy and love............
    .......There are priceless possessions, and also worthless ones..............
    .......What I appreciate the most is the fact, that you observe things so deeply and find joy in other's happiness.... (Report) Reply
