शिशु सा भोलापन
द्वैत में मन ...
देहरी पे अटका,
अल्हड बचपन !
The Haiku and the Tanka are written for the audio prompt given by dear friend Ravish Mani who created the prompt on my special request .. ahem-ahem :)
I chose to portray the bridal joy and anticipation, as the audio gave me the ambivalent feeling of happiness and nervousness at the same time.
Irrespective of her age and education, a bride is essentially a girl going to become a responsible person, an epitome of grace, dignity and maturity just in that distance from her maternal abode to her in-law's home.
Half aware of it, the hurt childhood hesitates but refuses to budge, while the dreams of ensuing future spur her towards that image of rosy bliss.
And there she wonders at the Threshold.... a sweet dilemma!
कलिका - a bud तुषार कणों - Frost स्नेह - affection मग्न- lost, absorbed
मृदुल - soft भोलापन - innocence द्वैत - duality, dilemma देहरी - threshold अटका - hitched अल्हड - carefree, jaunty
