Monday WRites 204


CUT THE CAKE
Refreshments, shared to cups and plates,
Guests, they have their fill,
For RSVP reserves a seat.

Ooohs and aaahs of bridal train,
Blessing cup already shared,
Music revolves around the space.

Regards from elders,
Bouquet jostled, well caught,
Enough! Up now! Cut the cake!

Today's mosaic shows a wedding gift i worked on from February to May of this year. There are all types of marriage bonds. i read of child marriages, marriages to bond countries, runaway marriages, romantic marriages, and of course there are lots more. The ones i luv are: where they fall in love, marry, and live happily ever after.
You've heard about the Monday Blues ❧✿❧ well this is Monday WRites (musing on the definition here of rite, as any customary observance or practice eg the rite of afternoon tea). A Happy Monday to all
Welcome to Monday WRites #204, ❧✿❧ What's your mood like today ❧✿❧ I invite you to link in with one of your WRites.

  10. I know how small those crochet hooks are for something like this. I commend you on your creation. Your quadrille is lovely also.

  19. Oh, Gillena - a piece of art! I can see why this delicate piece took several months. I am sure love was crocheted into every inch of this pattern. Heavenly! And your poem caught the sentiments of a wedding celebration, down to the cake! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, my friend across the sea.

  22. You have put so much effort to your wedding present! The lacy crocheting is so beautiful. There are so many kinds of marriages. One of the worst is a child bride 'sold' to a senior broom.
