Solah Shringar

Celebrating the beauty of female form,
To sweep the world in her charm’s storm,
Transcends in to the bliss of being a bride,
Applying “Solah Shringar” in beauty’s pride.

Beauty radiates from her kohl lined eyes
Lifting all in to awe, wonder and surprise,
In the battle of love her eyes always win,
At her glance, men collapse like nine pins,

Her enticing tresses cascaded down,
To reach half length of her long gown,
Combed and tended with warmest care,
Decked up with Mogra is her fragrant hair.

Call it trendy, exotic or beauty spot,
A third eye, cultural statement is this red dot,
Like a red moon on spotless white sky,
Her “Bindiya” makes all to heave out a sigh.

Her soft hands glistened with Henna art,
A thousand flowers bloomed in hearts,
Holding hands, I make voyages to heaven,
In her heart I want to build my haven.

In jewel embellished lehanga she looks coy,
A blouse with backside hook, it’s sheer joy,
In dupatta, a grand embroidary design,
With Chic like look, she floats in cloud nine.

She rests head on hand at nuptial night,
Bangles whisper vows of love with delight,
It pays homage to her beautiful face,
Getting inebriated by its divine grace.

Moonlit diamond hoop hanging in her nose,
With fullness of love heart overflows,
Bedazzled by the beauty of it’s fine shape,
From temptation how can I seek escape?

Tinkle of Payal matches with heartbeats,
My resolve is melting in passion’s heat,
Her anklets sings the rhapsody of love,
In heaven’s skies my spirit flies like a dove.

Looking at her Jumka, I suffer heartburn,
As they kiss her cheeks taking turns,
Along with her Jumka my heart swings,
In to the world of ecstacy, it takes wings.

Evoking feelings of tranquil contentment,
Epitomizing moon decked in ornaments,
Image of beauty conveying completeness,
Filling the world with her sweetness.
