Ah, lovely bride she…

It has been two years, nearly, since I first visited the space of Ramesh Sood or RS as he is known to the bloggers. I think it was OSI, a meme, that I found his space through, and many months later, we still read each other’s quite avidly. Well, he reads IRWR more than I read his space I suppose. He has been a friend, and wonderful supporter. He’s one who has been at Haiku Heights (the meme I host) almost since the first prompt. And he’s one who writes the haiku form with interest. So it was little surprise when I asked him for a haiku guest post. He’s come up with this.


Thanks to Leo for inviting me for a guest post.. Guru asking the Disciple to write.. can there be a greater encouragement than this.. No.. but then “The Givers” often do bestow one with such gifts.. Yes, it was Leo who initiated me into writing Haiku…and then I learnt some from Bill of haiku-usa…. and I continue to learn…and try… I am so happy to be here to share a series of Haiku which I have written based on some thoughts I picked up from the marriage ceremony of my wife’s niece ( mine too) solemnised on 11th March in Panjab..

Here’s to all the fans of Leo and Haiku.. have I succeeded.. let me know..

Ah, Lovely Bride She..

Star studded dress
reflects in her shining face;
ah, lovely bride she..

ah, lovely bride she
many bright dreams dance
in her dark eyes

in her dark eyes
also gather droplets of tears ;
a new world smiles

a new world smiles
with a promise of joy;
her hand in his..

her hand in his..
she feels comfortable
and reassured

and reassured
she fondly starts creasing her
star studded dress

RS 🙂

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
