Spontaneous Love


For the newlyweds, Varun + Bharadhi – on the eve of their reception – Nov 14th 2018

Love is a wondrous thing to have in any sort of weather
Storm or shine it fills your heart with absolute wonder
Bangles are there to enlighten our mood as we think
Of new ways to build a life together – and then a wink

As from above – a gentle go ahead to build a future
In which to share joys ah what wonderful splendour
Onions come and go to try and make us cry
But in our hearts we persevere as we try

Cabbages have so many layers and when we apply the
Simile to marriage, I find new ways to enliven thee
Spectacles we make – beautiful ways to view the world
Standing steadfast in love a poem forward hurled
