The Wedding

Written by: Brenda Victoria Northeast

The Wedding

All held their breath
At her exquisite beauty
Trumpets resounded
In the heavens

The perfume of her essence
Filled the air like spring birthing 
All manner of flowers

Her brightness 
Like the full moon on a clear night 
Went before her 
Laying a carpet shimmering 
Like rubies and diamonds 

Her crown a halo of light 
Beaming from a Tiara set with diamonds 
Around a single fluorescent pearl 

Her dress of flowing pure white silk 
Shimmered with encrusted diamonds 
That beamed rainbow colored light 
That danced across her gown 

And from ivory sculptured hands 
She held a perfect bouquet 
Of red and white roses

And before her
A procession of bridesmaids
Pure and white
Led her to the altar

Of her 
Betrothed
Her 
Beloved.
