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

waste overflowing
                 wilted rose buds 
made yesterday 
                unmistakable stench

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

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!

Wedding Vows

"Till death us do part"
Thus I stepped upon a trap;
Oh, Why I said that?
Now I wail to no avail,
Oh, my life is in shambles!

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

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.

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

wedding night

                                               In my wedding night
                                     My bride waits sandalwood smell
                                                 Girls are curious
                                             Collyrium eyes glisten 
                                       The moths sit on burning lights

Rose Corsage And Boutonniere

Red roses wristlet
Orange roses boutonniere
As betoken of 
The countryside espousal 
Of two souls becoming one

The Wedding

soft steps in the sand
naked feet and formal dress
macaws serenade
azure water comes ashore
kisses under the palm trees

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

First Night Is Sweet

The first night is sweet
Give and take makes it sweeter
For the vow to last,
Love is the answer, mending…
The differences we cast
