You and Your Blue Sari

Beauty of yours reaches an untouchable peak,

Every time you appear in the blue sari,

The colour of the generous sky and the bountiful sea,

I keep looking at you losing the power to speak!


Aphrodite starts breathing in you,

As distinction is hardly possible,

Can I even think of another parable?

To praise your beauty true.


Injustice will it be if I am not allowed to feel the heavenly bliss,

That you do bring with your sari, I must keep saying this.    

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The females wear ‘sari’ as a part of tradition in the South Asian countries such as Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The speaker in the poem has mentioned Aphrodite's name to express the 'beauty' that his beloved turns into.
