Diamonds

a poem by

Ajit Kumar Nair

A supernal sign
in leaves of history
auspicious and benign
of undying glory

A crystalline rhomb
an aura of shimmer
exuberant aplomb
and myriad glitter

Exuding pride
and unbound joy
to the opulent bride
or a damsel coy

Transcending chasms
of caste and colour
bestowing orgasms
and passionate fervour

As sylphlike trinkets
or a shiny garter
as earrings or anklets
a gem forever
