I am talking about love

a poem by

Alka Jain

The sharing of love,
the caring of love,
I am talking about-
the daring of love!
Never has there an emotion existed,
which my little heart has never visited;
amidst the various emotions at war-
love emerged innocent and pure!
Love is nothing much,
just a healing touch,
to wounded hearts;
its fragrance is thus!
My life has been an odyssey of love,
from the moment I was born;
When my mother held me tightly in her arms-
all my fear was gone!
The joy of love!
Sweet poise of love!
I am talking about-
that voice of love!
I am basking in the warmth of love;
My heart resembles that white dove,
sublime, serene and secure,
love is above all, simply above!

All for your Sparkle

a poem by

Alka Jain

When I was a child too small:
To estimate a diamond by its’ cost,
To find its value in carat,
To appreciate it for its cut,
To be amazed by its clarity,
To understand the intricacies of the 4 C’s.

Then,
All thee held my gaze was the sudden sparkle!
It made me feel, as if, from somewhere suddenly,
out of darkness, a young girl keep out laughing!
Now, grown up to love and be loved by someone,

I adore the few diamonds which I am proud to own;
like my engagement ring.

With small diamonds engrained to form a circle
They shine brightly and sparkle so!
On the face of my husband’s blushing bride!

Be it the obvious sheen of a lady’s nose stud,
Or the hide and seek of the diamond earrings-
that emerge when you push back your hair,
or the diamond locket, with such a heavenly glare.

To the diamonds sparkles goes all the praise!
It sparkles to bring back the sparkle on your face!
