For My Lovely Friend : Pratigyaz "Let your heart guide you...but listen closely because it whispers"
- Land Before Time
Pratigya walks out slowly,hesitantly , her heart hammering in shyness,excitement,embarrassment ...she walks on slowly trying to cover herself completely,an impossible task for he already has seen her soul in all its glory ...She walks on with closed eyes guided by the beacon of love ..."If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand."
Krishna who has been siting impatiently on a chair watches her approach in slight amusement..but the amusement vanishes when he beholds his queen, he observes each and every undulating curves keenly, the master , the possessor of this nymph is transfixed by her beauty , her demeanor slowly is pulled of is chair by the magical spell she has cast ..He stands looking at this splendid vision, His own Helen ...Drunk on her beauty , intoxicated by her silence he is pulled towards her, he goes unhesitatingly ..."A part of you has grown in me. And so you see, it's you and me together forever and never apart, maybe in distance, but never in heart."
Our princess is abashed and is finding it difficult to open her eyes , for she fears that she may encounter laughter ...her discomfort at the same time an unexplained excitement increases when she feels his presence near her ..."Love is . . . born with the pleasure of looking at each other, it is fed with the necessity of seeing each other, it is concluded with the impossibility of separation!"
Krishna wants to have his fill of his domain, he slowly walks to her side,brushing his shoulder alongside hers...Pratigya is jolted by a million watt power, her breath quickens and every nerve endings of her being is aware of him ...and is breathlessly awaiting his next move ..He circles his universe slightly brushing his hand against her's ...she is struck by lightning and whisks her hand away ,trembling and curling her hands , her petite frame unable to withstand the powerful emotions surging through , the feeling induced by the touch of her lord ..."We all want to fall in love. Why? Because that experience makes us feel completely alive. Where every sense is heightened, every emotion is magnified, our everyday reality is shattered and we are flying into the heavens. It may only last a moment, and hour, an afternoon. But that doesn't diminish its value. Because we are left with memories that we treasure for the rest of our lives."
He again goes and stands in front of her , gazing at the innocent countenance ,and realizations seeping in that his reticent queen is feeling disconcerted arrayed in this apparel ,he once again scrutinizes the intoxicating beauty of his wife and gently places his arms on her shoulders and slowly runs his hands upon her shoulder's...Pratigya is torn between discomfort and growing pleasure..But the eyes remain shut ...seeking to alleviate the discomfort..Krishna takes a silken bed spread and tenderly and with a loving smile wraps it around her ..Pratigya is startled into opening her eyes and looks at him ..seeing the emotion's in his eyes ,she quickly casts her eyes down...but her feminine has caught the look , it is roused and shaking off the society bound shackles ,stirs and fluttering its wings raises the downcast eyes and gazes shyly at her masculine half ...How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said. ~Victor Hugo
Krishna again places his arms on her shoulder, but now the woman is ready and is reciprocating his feelings in full measure , Krishna slowly caresses her eyes and brushes it off her face ...Pratigya turns her face towards his hand like a sunflower being drawn towards the Sun ..Krishna leans forward and gently plants a kiss on her eyes ...Pratigya's breath quickens , emotions races through like a fire raging through a dry grassland ..Krishna takes her hand and places it on his heart ...Pratigya is drugged by the music she hears in his heartbeat ..and looks in a stupor at Krishna ..and bowing to Eros , finally seal their souls with a caress on their lips...and begin a voyage of discovery ...The moment eternal - just that and no more -
When ecstasy's utmost we clutch at the core
While cheeks burn, arms open, eyes shut, and lips meet!
~ Robert Browning
