A New Life Begins - Poem by Jaishree Nair
Today is the great day,
The beginning of another life;
The rhythm of music waltzing in her heart,
A smile unknowingly played on her lips.
Humming a tune she breezed through
enjoying the hustle bustle of the day
She tried to smoothen her locks
raring to burst out of it's tight clasp.
A thumping loud! from her heart?
She stopped - suffocated?
An anticipatory beat-she mused
Ticking a count down for the Moment.
She paused in front of the mirror;
The depth of passion for the unknown thrill
reflected back from the eyes in front.
A tremor of anticipation shook her.
To bathe in the river of emotions
To experience the touch of ecstasy
like a bud eager to bloom in full under
the caressing touch of wind gentle.
The murmur of Cupid's secret ringing in her ears;
Body tingling with the fragrance of perfumed lather
Cheeks glowing reflecting the colour of inner excitement!
Her lips flaming red ignited by the fire within.
to match her exclusive designer wear.
Her eyes half closed to drown in the flow
of bubbling mystic of a maiden's dreams
painting her desires with exotic colours.....
Willing to be united in love and bond of holy matrimony
She heard laughter outside
Entered her friends teasing to adorn her
To make her more irresistible than Aphrodite's girdle;
to take the breath away of many
but above all to enchant her prince charming.
She sat silent, shyness concealing
the conflicts of emotions inside....
Waiting for the ring to seal her fate
For the better - she hoped- prayed
A new life beginning..............!
