Workshop # 3
Playing with the ‘real’ hearts is a serious business,
And unauthorized for all –
Even the surgeons have to think it twice,
While nurses sleep at the beck and call!
The decisions still dance around,
Until the dilemma uplifts the veil –
And the moments arise, upon fusion of hearts,
To cherish or ring the bell!
We trot the globe in the wings of dreams
In search of our own sweetheart –
From dawn till dusk, the ‘move’ stays on,
To push the life’s one and only cart!
The webs of joy weave the threads
To create a strong happiness net –
And tangle two floating hearts, like a roping
In the rodeo, until the bull is set!
Romances bloom in the stems of mind,
And fence around the life’s beloved goal –
While keeping the high hopes alive,
Where heart will never touch the flaming coal!
The dazzling rainbow creates a smile on the sailor’s ship
Battling the troubled sea –
And keeps on hoping to reach the shore,
Where lies the happiness key!
Life in an essence resembles the worried sailor,
But moves on with the throbbing of the hearts –
While playing hide and seek at times,
As shown in the movies or visual arts!
But today, this is reality that we drench here
In happiness and joy –
’Cause of a merger of hearts, held in Jamaica,
Between a girl and a boy!
The sunset on the islands witnessed the vow,
And waves roared the lonely shore –
While Tony slipped the ring, and Linda couldn’t think any more!
Well, the jubilation, nurtured in the remote islands,
Is now imported in Nyork for us to tell –
About the happiness of Linda and Tony, forever,
Through the wedding bell!
Now, let their hearts be showered with
The deepest blessings from the God –
Because throughout in life, He is our savior
Who has given them His precious nod!
Let us pray for their restless minds to bond together
To form an indelible link –
And we will carry on the festivities,
While in the ocean of love they long dearly to sink!!
