Hopes - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Braying are we.
Praying are they
For want of rain, found a way
We feel honoured to get wedded
Hence cornered and here seated
A perfect ritual with right wedding attire
Arranged exclusively for their rain desire
Clad in silk saree and dothi
Glad with flower garlands are we
Our long ears tied with flower drops
Sindhoor and holy ash adorning our foreheads
A traditional music band in high spirits
With hundreds of guests in high cheers
The priest conducting with customary incantation,
The holy knot is tied in ovation
Blessed are we, cursed is the drought
Wedding for the rains to be brought
Untied now are our hind legs
Happily kicking we run wagging our tails
Any more donkey wedding? We're your hopes
