Pal’s Wedding

The wedding of Pal
 a few decades back displayed 
his most extra ordinary 
behaviour,  quixotic rather.  

Dressed in a Sherwani,
stitched in detail and forethought 
 by his mother to fit all her sons.
 the golden brocade material

shone with a brilliance
being brushed and polished 
with care. His hair 
hung loose, the unruly locks

covered his face, his 
moustache dropped
the turban was a little big
did not sit well on his head.

he led the procession
with his mother beside him. 
dad and siblings followed. 
The village was agog to witness

 a bridegroom different 
from the regular. With
 a sly smile  he entered 
to meet his  coy bride.
