any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
The gift of five sugared almonds is a wonderful wedding tradition, I think. So simple, yet so meaningful, Sumana. It is very nice to begin life together with such blessings as these.
I have learned something new, Sumana. I like how rites, even apparently small ones, add meaning to important life cycle events. And in the end we all crave for peace, love and beauty, I agree.
that is cool..i have had the almonds at weddings but i never knew the connection on the odd number...that is cool....
Almonds are considered auspicious in all special rites.Very well written Sumana.
Excellent and what a great tradition. In the Bible the number 5 represents the grace of God, free unmerited favour. This really fit in with the marriage tradition. i love the way you make thus really make love sing.
Sugared almonds figure prominently in Southern European wedding traditions, also, Sumana. I liked your poem and the ending is indeed is something that humans can aspire to...
Thanks for sharing this custom...
I did not know that. Thanks for treating me to a new custom, and image now.
