  • Poem depicts the pic quite well. ????????

  • Embracing grace :-) Amazing poem and painting Somali.

  • A beautiful Haiku poetry depicting feminine grace along with the Master Painter Jamini Roy’s painting.
    Simplicity also enhances the feminine grace.

  • Lovely poetry in praise of a woman’s grace. ???? ???? ????

  • The lines exude the same riveting charm as the strokes of Jamini Roy!

  • Sensuous verses in tandem with the strokes!

  • Lovely :-) Sometimes the simplest is often not always the easiest to achieve :-) While I write poetry, I am no good at all at Haiku :-) And those simple brush strokes are amazingly good

  • The way Jamini Roy was graceful with her brush, the same way you are graceful with your words. Your Haiku is in tandem with the simple-looking yet extra-ordinary work of the great painter.

  • I really like this somali, you always capture feelings and ideas with grace!

  • Wow somali … Very well described the painting..Amazing.. Simplicity reflects more grace.. Have a good time.. :)

  • Feminine grace is wonderfully defined in a saree…the painting of Jamini Roy and your words, both are revealing that sartorial elegance… :-)

  • Lovely! Your haiku and the painting by Jamini Roy :-)

  • Jamini Roy’s painting is attractive and your short verse compliments it.

  • Another lovely Haiku. Such a beautiful painting, and your Haiku complements the painting.
    Have a great weekend!
