What a beautiful poem xx
Thank you Christy B – glad you found it so. Cheers, Eric
Thank you Aparna
P/s Got it right this time 🙂
Loved how you’ve hid a great culture within few lines…
Peace & Light
Thank you Mira.
Indian culture is one of the oldest and richest. We can draw so much from it.
A lovely poem…a fine one to start my week with.
Happy to have obliged. Have a great week ahead, Eric 🙂
a cinematic scene gauzily adorned with beauty
echoing a well aged expectation fed to daughters with caution-laden eyes
that widen in the fear of judgement
a woman’s virtue measured in how well it has been protected
You’re right. A woman’s virtue is much more, I agree.
In some societies – one can only wonder how many men would accept a woman who has ‘known’ another, and how many mothers-in-law would accept such a daughter-in-law.
The hypocrisy of people can be amusing, to say the least.
I could only write so because I felt you would understand =)
nevertheless it was an enthralling read elegantly captured =)
Smell of rose petals and the tinkling of bangles…and the shy night
moon dares…stars tease
what a beautiful gorgeous poem…
You know Soma dear – I’m so used to reading your somewhat Irreverent but always seriously thoughtful posts – it is strange to read a ‘straight’ comment such as this.
So unlike you – but I say this in a very nice way 🙂
Much luv and hugz, Eric
Eric, this is beautiful. It sings of beauty and grace as two become one. Lovely!
Ah, my dear Jeannie 🙂
Emotions can be so intense sometimes. Let us all feel happy for couples such as these two.
Really transforming, beautiful
I’m not much of a romantic but reading all the comments here is so encouraging. Thank you dear 🙂
Sorry Eric, I gave you the wrong link (!) here is the right one: http://journalread.wordpress.com/awards/ii/
Got it Polly – thank you.
Congratulations to you for having landed this award. Happy blogging, Eric 🙂
nice poem..The poem and the photo are very Indian:)
Thank you. I drew the scene from Indian culture and felt an Indian beauty would be more appropriate.
asik pak cik….
good poem that i read today.
Halo Pak, dan berharap semuanya baik-baik. Terima kasih atas kunjungan Anda dan keinginan yang baik. Semoga hari besar di depan. Eric.
P/S: Saya minta maaf jika saya membuat kesalahan dalam jawaban saya
Thank you Pak. I appreciate your visit and compliments. Have a great day ahead, Eric
tidak ada yang salah ko Pak Cik.
thank you and take care.
Eric, I have only very recently discovered you, so it may seem a little pretentious, but I would like to nominate you for a Versatile Blogger Award, as I do like what I have read of your work so far (and appreciate your kindness and connectedness to other writers)..
Dear Marina – what a wonderful and thoughtful gesture. Recognition by fellow bloggers is very welcomed. Thank you.
As writers, we are on a somewhat lonely journey. A smiling face and a small cheerful wave makes it better. We can all do with some encouragement, I reckon.
All good wishes, Eric
This is an absolutely wonderful, and sensual depiction of beauty. Radha is an experience of beauty in your poem. Thank you for this as it brightened my day a little more. 🙂
“Radha is an experience” – this phrase caught my eye. I can read much into this and yes, you are absolutely right.
Glad that it brought some light into your day. The world needs more ‘light’.
gorgeous like a newly wed bride 🙂
First nights are memorable nights and if they can last forever…
I could use a few more of them meself 😉
Can’t we all 🙂
This was just beautiful. The imagery you use and the emotions they evoke are wonderful.
Hello Janna – thank you so very much. I enjoy your writing and this compliment from you is very welcomed. Cheers, Eric
The first stanza really drew me in, “I bathe your feet with ancient rites / Of turmeric dust, flower scented milk / Shyness hides under sandalwood past / Henna tempts with magic on your skin.” Immediately taken to that place and time. Phrased very well too. Very nice!
I hope you don’t mind me saying this – You’re probably a very sensitive and loving person – we need more such people as this world can otherwise be quite harsh.
All good cheer, Eric
Thank you for the very kind words, I don’t see how I could mind at all :-). And thank you for the support. Looking forward to your next post.
Glad I could read this one. After a long time got a break to read… This is pure talent… hats off… 🙂
Yes, you did drop off a bit there…Glad that you are back and thank you for the compliment. I’ll be visiting your blog to relish more of your posts…
Beauty blessed and reflected in your words… a wondrous poem of first night..pure and divine..
Glad you found it so – yes, true love and real beauty can be divine when entwined.
All the very best with your forthcoming anthology of poems,
Thaks Eric, still struggling with the editing part of the proof copy…hopefully I complete it soon properly.
I would second Jyoti’s comment above. It’s a joy read and purely fantastic. Well done, Cik! 🙂
Thank you Pak Subhan,
These are generous words indeed coming from a person who posts some great works.
All good wishes, Eric
One word would suffice.. FANTASTIC..
I don’t know if u know that. but the lady in your picture is actually a Hindu mythology character Radha ( Lover of lord Krishna).. the epitome beauty, grace n love
Thank you Jyoti.
Yes, Radha is a divine beauty. No I didn’t know but posted the image as she was the kind of person I had in mind when penning this post.
All good wishes, Eric
Jyoti – I would love to comment on your blog posts but it does not allow WP (only yahoo, facebook, etc) – I’m afraid not into these.
