An ode to glass bangles

Molten glass
fused to a circle
Comes in many colours -
red,green, orange or purple

Some come as a dozen,
some as pair
These circled rainbows
shine in every village fair

Some are translucent,
some opaque
I've got a good options
for the choice to make

They add color
to my bare wrist
And twinkle a little,
like the morning mist

A silent witness
to my daily chores
A non-living friend
who listens my mumbling woes

Adding melody
to my moving hands
They make my
appearance feel grand

Their tinkles
are so therapeutic
They make me
feel romantic

A tool to call out
my husband without my voice
Oh! they make such a
gentle breezy noise

An object of play
For my lovely son
Along with his toys-
his teddy and his gun

They bring back memories
of my late grandmother
All those lovely moments
of wearing them together

They add little joy
to my mundane life
A perfect gift
for your daughter or wife!

Woman, you are beautiful....

(Image taken from here Pc: Hema Gopinath Sah)

Woman, you are beautiful
with those spots
Just like the moon
and unplucked strawberries

Woman, you are beautiful
with those stretch marks,
the sweet residues your body left
after bringing God's masterpiece to earth
Flaunt them with pride

Woman, you are beautiful
without hair
Just like the sun
like the day you were born
And the day you killed cancer

Woman you are beautiful
with those strands of grays
Like salmon swimming
Up the river
A monochrome canvas from God

Woman you are beautiful
with every wrinkle
that holds inside its fold
another unknown story
another chapter to the wonderful
book that is you

The mirror you believe,
Calls the perfect - an ugly mistake
Because it knows not what is inside
Close your eyes and listen
To the love songs the universe
sings about you!

Heart Volcano

(Image taken from here)

Rupture of sorrow
in my heart volcano, lava
of tears flow...
