There is always a light

There is always a light
Don't be afraid if you are alone or surrounded by darkness. In some part of the world, the day has just begun. There is a always a light waiting for you to find your way to touch its radiance.

The Orchid Woman

By Sanghamitra Das
Santiniketan, India
My bridal trousseau is ready, woven with cobwebs stretched on a loom of mango branches .
The spring has shaken me from the shackles of hibernation. Lustral April shower sprinkled  dust on me. I woke up inflamed, breaking into blooms of white, mauve, yellow, etched with macula of sienna, the threaded motifs of the eternal seamstress to adorn my virginity.
The feeble vela , my hair extensions, reach out to sip the moisture potions from the air cooling me from within. The strumming cord of the gentle breeze quavers in celebration. My lack of oration compensated with the fragrance of the ornate blossoms.
 In my futile attempt to resist this perilous and stormy romance with the nature, the tree holds me firm in offering. I am an Orchid woman soon to be wedded with the eternal He man-- nature.
