Myriad moods of marriage

Arrange,
to meet to assess if there’s something
Connect,
over similar tastes and sweet nothings

Peep,
from beneath the lashes, wondering if there’s reason to reject
Glance,
eyes entangled, hearts somersault did effect

Adore,
at first sight;  is it even real?
Infatuated,
with every detail, however trivial!

Love,
isn’t it actually lust after a fashion?
Caress,
how can a mere touch ignite fiery passion!

Vows,
to remain faithful to each other forever
Cherish,
each other in this lifetime and ever

Stand
together as a team whatever the times
Agree,
to not disagree on parenting paradigms

Understand,
the nuances of what is left unsaid
Respect,
the boundaries that are never set

Raise,
not your voice, temper the temper
Silence,
not each other but anger’s ember

Celebrate,
the differences that make one who they are
Accept,
adjust, not complain nor needlessly spar

Aging,
should not dim the zeal nor the fervour
United,
hearts always beating in tandem with ardour.

Written for dVerse MTB. Today’s host, Laura, says; today’s poetry prompt it’s all about couples, twos, in other words couplets!

The poetic form I have used, as suggested by Laura, is the côte.

  1. A fabulous côte, Punam, with a marvellously alliterative title! I like the way you have structured your couplets, the clever rhymes, and that you continued with the theme of marriage Laura chose for her example poems.

  2. A fabulous cote! Your words carry me through the process of marriage. Having visited India a number of times, I treasure the image you’ve chosen here. My family visit in India, where the wife shared with me her wedding photos from her arranged marriage to her husband of thirty+ years, is a memory I will never forget.

  3. Oh wonderfully explained Punam. It may seem too difficult to follow everything that you have mentioned, but if one manages to, I think it will lead to a wonderful married life 🙂 Well written.

    1. Vignesh, that’s very nice of you to say. Different things work for different people but love, honesty and respect are the mainstay of any marriage. Thanks so much. 🙂

    1. Nehal, the concept of marriage is beautiful but it requires work from both sides.
