Dripping with spring’s laburnum
Whirl in divine ecstasy
Sows the quilt of love and harmony
Souls become one...
....shaping together a life
of dreams, of ideals, of passions
Hearts interlock, hands reach out
barefoot, they walk around the fire
For the ‘seven steps...
The priest chants
He leads… she follows
Agreeing to keep the vows
In the still of the night
walking hand in hand
Total strangers under the open sky
Feel the fire erasing niches between them
A beautiful union blossoms…
Linking souls and senses
Perfectly planned in heaven
Seal the bond forever with
The SEVEN VOWS !!
Taking ‘Seven vows’ undertaken by the bride and the groom around a sacred fire in Hindu wedding is compulsory. Fire is considered sacred and vows taken in front of Agnideva (God of fire) as the witness apparently seals the bond forever.
