Love is in the Air - Queen



Day 17 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Queen

The future queen blossomed
Rama's love chaste and pure
His care and love thus lessened
The hardships she had to endure

Rama protected the queen of his heart
Gently he did guide
He could not imagine them being apart
He was glad Sita was by his side


Rama loved Sita with every breath he took. He cared for her and tended to her every need. In the forest, he had nothing to offer Sita but his love and the gifts of nature.

Rama brought her flowers for a necklace, as an adornment for her hair, as bangles for her hands.  He brought her fruits and berries that they shared together in the moonlight. And each day he gave her a lovely lotus. Sita loved the lotus as does Goddess Lakshmi.

When the thorns pricked Sita's feet, he lovingly tended to them. When she was tired he would find a place for her to rest And when she was sad thinking of her sisters and home, Rama comforted her and brought a smile back on her face. Sita's smile gave Rama the greatest joy.

Sita never felt afraid or alone. She felt safe and secure with Rama and Lakshman by her side. They ensured that Sita was never left alone.

Rama was grateful that Sita was by his side. Though he had asked her to stay behind in the palace, Sita had refused the luxuries of royal life. For her the palace was a place of exile if Rama wasn't there with her and the forest was her palace if he was by her side.

We often equate our measure of love with the amount of wealth we pour onto each other, but love in its purest form is simple. And anything given that is heartfelt and with pure intentions, is true love as demonstrated by Lord Rama.

Rama, Sita and Lakshman spent 13 happy years in the forest. They had many adventures in visiting many learned sages in ashrams to battles with demons. And in a years time they would complete their exile and return to Ayodhya.

But soon life was to take a very different turn for them. That tale begins tomorrow with the letter R.

Love is in the air. May your love get you through the difficult times and lessen each other's load.

The Ramayana is a historical chronicle of events during the life of Lord Rama in an ancient time in a land called Bharatvarsh a part of which is now modern day India. 

This year's theme was given to me through meditation. But more than just a theme I was also asked to write this from the perspective of Divine love and not just a recounting of the events as they took place. Hence the essence of my posts is "Love is in the air".

The individual theme and tone of my verses are also given to me. And I try to convey what Spirit wants to say through my poetry and prose. In essence, I only transcribe what is given to me, the author of these posts is my soul, the Universe, God and Goddess.

  3. Very sweet narration of the devotion between the two. And yes, love can transform exile into luxury and the other way around. Is R going to bring in the 10-headed Ravana?

  11. Oh, that was so lovely to read. Love is in the small gestures, and you describe that so well for Rama and Sita.. Kind of wish they could stay like that "forever after" and not only" 13 years.... but, ok, bring it on Suzy- ready for it...
