Sari - Poem by Jaishree Nair

Sari- a traditional Indian attire;
to enhance fragility and femininity at its best;
for the sexiest form of homo sapiens!
Yards of soft woven thread-
delicate and intricately designed-
to do justice to graceful swans.

Compliments their structure stately;
Defines the feminine curves fine;
Subtle seductivity its feature-
Soft expensive silks
salient in elegance for the rich;
Colourful expressive cotton -
to emphasis moods various;
Polyester for the poor economy.

Highlights the innocent shyness
in a comely village girl,
Sensually provocative in a society lady,
Clad in red -the docile Indian bride,
White for mourners silent,
The style various with subtle
difference to grace all occasions.

Careful carelessness in its draping
creates visions vivid!
Intrigued by its obvious mystery
Men have declared -
Sari-The sexiest of all costumes! !

    A lovely poem on Sari. Sari is the most graceful attire for a lady.
    Every lady looks beautiful in a Sari. Enjoyed reading it.

    lovely poem...once worn, a sari always looks wonderful; initially when one starts wearing it, it is an extremely stressful exercise because the folds just don't fall in a neat pattern. It took me years of practice to get it right every time. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
