An Ethnic Thread

An Ethnic Thread

Crimson threaded down with gold and yellow;

Its ornate centre with stones sequence and a bow,

Lay cushioned on rose petals and chrysanthemums;

On a plate of brass; studded on it were red and green gems,

A lamp also of brass put everything on it; aglow

A brother by and large combatant; Today

His heart did melt and flow

As she tied the knot again and again this day

The usual impertinence and frown; all gone from her brow

Laughter love and only love tinkled and chimed!

As she tucked herself tight into his arms

Happy Rakshabandhan to all those lovely brothers out there!!!
