The poet uses ample of images to show the softness, light-weight and beauty of the bride who is sitting in the palanquin. She compares the bride with a flower as she is soft, weightless and fragrant like it.
Next the bride is compared to a bird which skims on the foam of a river (the bird does not assert any weight on the foam) because the weight of bride on the palanquin bearers is not felt by the palanquin bearers.
Next the bride is considered as a pearl (precious stone) on the cloth because she is precious and beautiful. The poet then calls her a star (sun rays) in the dew because she shines like the rays).
