Day4-NaPoWriMo-Celestia

The day before yesterday when I was looking for a character name to start with B—as part of this Intuitive Poetry series based on heteronym characters—for no known reason, I got the name for the letter C as Celestia. In fact, it came more precisely with an intuitive sketch that told me Celestia is someone who holds immense love but least did I know that her story will take this form.

Introducing Celestia with this prose poetry:

CELESTIA

How do I say no to this little girl who comes calling C-e-l-l-y  A-u-n-t-y, dressed in her favourite unicorn tutu dress, wearing the brightest smile that I know not how to describe —sunshine or a rainbow smile—yet it only gets as beautiful as it can?

How do I say no to this little girl who comes calling C-e-l-l-y  A-u-n-t-y carrying the smell of the ghee glazed sweet pudding that her mother—my friend in the neighbourhood—makes every evening to satiate her sweet tooth in a healthy way? 

How do I say no to this little girl who comes calling C-e-l-l-y  A-u-n-t-y to take me to her imaginary world where dragons are small, cute looking aliens that don’t spit fire, rather cry their lungs out and come to our planet in search of their lost parents?

How do I say no to this little girl who comes calling C-e-l-l-y  A-u-n-t-y to give her let-me-try-the-best-to-wrap-my-hands-around-your-wide-waist-hugs turns me into Olaf, wanting more of her warm hugs; making me yell and say some people, rather babies, are worth melting for?

How do I say no to this little girl who comes calling C-e-l-l-y  A-u-n-t-y making my heart swell with the dhak-dhaks of it becoming more loud like another big-bang in the making unsure of an expansion or explosion?

How do I say no to this little girl who comes calling C-e-l-l-y  A-u-n-t-y, making me lose in her universe of love that it gets daunting to live in a parallel universe when her tiny feet walk away hesitantly tracing back to her home?

          How do I say no to this little girl who comes calling C-e-l-l-y  A-u-n-t-y, her eyes twinkling with wonder, her stories-studded        stars, in the sky of her imagination, her innocence-a hundred galaxies, her whole self - my unfathomable universe; 
                     How do I say no to this little girl who comes calling C-e-l-l-y  A-u-n-t-y, only to remind me of the lack of a universe to call my own when she leaves by my sight, drowning me in the dark tunnels of my lightless wombs?

Tonight, I have nothing more to add. I hope Celestia did all the talking!
