The Circle of Life





Something about brides....and weddings that gets me misty eyed. Another sonnet written for the same theme, thought I'd share the song that inspired the poem :) 









Tempestuously, her silver anklets tinkle
Her heartbeat, the ornate bangles, jingle

Mesmerizing eyes hold a million dreams
Emotions run like an inhibited stream

Quivering lips that part into a shy smile
A coy demeanor that spells docile

In a gorgeous braid, her thick long hair
Of fallen petals, the fragrance fills the air

A bedecked palanquin is where she sits
To a new future her past she submits

The bud that flowered in the father’s house
Must now scent the gardens of the spouse

Once a daughter, but now she is a wife
Tradition calls it the circle of life.

Well Ash, my first write up ever was a poem at the age of 10. So I think you can safely say that :D

I must admit; if a bride-to-be reads this poem, she'd end up with tears in her eyes. :)
