My white wedding dress
  Now on my eldest daughter
    Twirling in mirror
      I hope in twenty years she
        Won’t be invisible too

Beauty In The Eyes Of The Beholder

Lovely baby blues
Your eyes on our wedding day
Years melt and are gone
Age changes outward beauty
Memory keeps the moment

On A Wedding Day

Walking down the aisle
While sweet music softly plays
Feels like on the clouds
With my pure white wedding gown 
And my hands with fresh bouquet

We take solemn vow
On sunny or stormy days
Whatever  happens
Together without a fear
We embrace our future aims

In a new sunrise
We lovingly look forward
Sprinkled with blessings
We’ll bind together with love
Love- forever from above

The resplendent bride adorned in red, white and gold, radiant beauty. The handsome groom- - Adonis himself, gladly tied the knot. An arranged marriage, Finding love in daily chores, Upheavals of life, Testing and turbulent times, Like a needle in haystack. Delightful angels Two ,Ever bridging the rift Ushering in joys, Deepening the sacred bond, Eight years of marital bliss!

             dove grey dress
counterpoint to
white roses 
             wedding vows pledged
             in five minute ceremony

waste overflowing
                 wilted rose buds 
made yesterday 
                unmistakable stench

Love and Marriage

Love and Marriage

Marriage without love
Love-making  should make it work.
Love without marriage
Love-making could make it slip.
Big  questions  of make and break.

Stolen Wedding Ring

For years it shone gold

Brightening a lonely home

Left home for a walk

Late hubby’s ring was stolen

What thief could be so heartless

*This just happened to me.

Afternoon Music

Cool breezy chapel,
Summer wedding— pastor’s voice
Climbs into the bride’s 

Ears, the groom whispers to God;
A baby cries— rings exchanged.

Marriage is a deal
It gives love’s recognition
It is a blessing
It paves the way for more care
For each other in the world
