WEDDING SONNET
Ballons are such joyous sacs.
Filled with awesome elation.
Even if you turn your backs,
You are steeped in jubilation.

All rise to greet her, new bride.
Bedecked in royal splendor she.
Going to be at her husband's side,
Tis her day, he waits patiently.

And so in this sacred place,
A vow of oneness blessed divine,
With ministers to plead each case,
Feast acclaim of bread and wine.

Now two are one in boundless time.
Symbol of rings spent to honour,
Must one to the other each a prime,
To voyage to journey set in favour.

Whence heaven with her bounteous smile,
Ride overhead, clouds of angels on high.

  1. Always such high hopes....the major reason women are admitted to the hospital, domestic violence. Forgive me if I popped a ballon or two. Perhaps our "picking" skills should be improved.

  6. oh there is a dreamy romantic loveliness to this - and I'm not one for the "hallmark sentiments" which is why I'm liking this - because it doesn't seem "sentimental" - actually, rather more of a sacred flavour, in an an awed way - like you've captured the true wonder and delight of the surprise of love, hopefully everlasting ~ dreamy and just elegant Gillena ­čŹâ

  13. Wow! "Ballons are such joyous sacs." And in the sacredness of wedding, a beginning (or continuation?) with much promise, may those balloons remain full--or never empty and ever refillable. I'm smiling, but with a happy tear. Have a lovely day, Gillena. You've inreased the loveliness of mine.

  18. I love the promise, the joy in your words Gillena.
    A wedding is the beginning of a hoped-for beautiful life ahead, and hopefully is for most. Sadly for some, the balloon bursts...
