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!!!
