tickling ivories

tickling ivories
scintillating music sound
filling the inner soul  
a petal drops in the pond
a faint ripple grows bigger                                    (Sumana Roy)

by the shallow pond

by the shallow pond
reflection drawing northern fowl
a warm sun shimmers 
‘clammy cells’ call  buzzing bees
Honey-stories to be spun                                            (Sumana Roy)

in hidden places

in hidden places
under the porch floorboards-
cherry blossoms
                                               (Managua Gunn)
beneath the sycamore shade
rainbow drops glow on grass blade                 (Sumana Roy)

crossing the footbridge
crossing the footbridge
a sound that comes unbidden ...
my wild beating heart  
rabbit’s scurry unfinished
bloody talon shoots up high                     (Sumana Roy)

entangled branches
sun ascends through lifeless limbs
beautiful chaos                                        (Anmol )

phoenix up with fiery wings
from black ashes of the night                   ( Sumana Roy )

As Agni* witnessed
We began with seven rounds
Our life’s journey

*The rituals and process in a Hindu wedding vary widely. Nevertheless, there are a few key rituals common in Hindu weddings - Kanyadaan, Panigrahana, and Saptapadi, which are respectively, gifting away of daughter by the father, voluntarily holding hand near the fire to signify union, and taking seven steps with each step includes a vow/promise to each other before fire.[4] The Hindu wedding ceremony at its core is essentially a Vedic yajna ritual. The primary witness of a Hindu marriage is the fire-deity (or the Sacred Fire) Agni, in the presence of family and friends.[5]**

river stones
caressed by flowing water
pale moon shines                                            
(Becca Givens)
white blooms wish to multiply
night air is filled with fragrance                      (Sumana Roy)

I may be tender
But I do break the Earth’s crust
And look at the Sun

by the garden path
an upside down flowerpot
cottage for a toad                                     (Mark M. Redfearn)
a creepy being waits long
for a sumptuous dinner                            (Sumana Roy)
