Thou aren’t the creation of His alone –

Man has crafted you too, bestowing

surreal beauty upon you –

That, though, came straight from his heart!

Poets weaved your dresses

With similes and metaphors galore,

Casting upon you, every time, a new grace.

Artistes made your idol immortal,

Came colours, aromas, ornaments.

Pearls came from depths of ocean,

Gold from goldmines, flowers from an

ensemble of Spring –

From head to toe they bedecked you!

You were endowed with shyness, kindling

Man’s imagination of  you from afar;

Veiling you thus, man weaved

A web of enigma around you,

Making cravings for you even more.

Woman! God’s creation you’re only by half!

The other half is but man’s fantasy!
