Am I not beautiful?

This is the third post in this batch of Guest-post series on this site. The contributions are from people like you and me but not necessarily from the blogging world. We see, observe and experience many mundane things in our daily life. The flavours are different but the interest is common in these posts … and that is Travel.

Over to Suranga Daté.

Tell me, am I not beautiful?

Not for nothing
do they call me
the Queen of the Desert.

The Pushkar fair
… is when
us ladies
are at our best.

Heavily lidded
kajolled eyes,
lashes delicate
and floating;
eyebrows are not
in fashion
anymore,
but like your
society types,
with multi-pierced ears,
I had my nose
specially pierced,
to display
my gold heirloom noserings.

A regular regime
of
Fair and Lovely
and L’oreal Paris,
and I am ready
for
interacting
with Lovely folks
at the Fair.

Special neckwear,
brilliant nostrilwear,
a sand facial,
to get even fairer,
and I’ve been
practicing
the pout…

Did I just hear someone say,
“Angelina Jolie
Eat your heart out !…”

This post is from Suranga Daté who blogs at Strewn Ashes. Anything I say about Suranga would be an understatement. She is an extremely talented woman. She travels on a broom and has a magical wand of words. Show her a photo, situation or something similar, she does wonders to it. She wrote this beautiful poem instantly when she saw this photo of pouting camel. 😀

P.S.- If you want to travel with me on my journeys, I suggest you to join me on my Facebook travel page and check out my Twitter account.
