Click the banner to read Kathleen Marie's idea for linking to poetic, prosaic and artistic expression each Saturday (and to read her beautiful poem). The more I unlock my mind to writing, the more that thoughts sometimes come to me in the form of poetry, which I certainly don't normally publish. I appreciate Kathleen Marie providing this forum for us to publish (and view) others' work in this way.
This is just a little thought that came to me this week:
The Two Become One
Will you? Yes!
Consecrated, celebrated, officiated love
Who gives the bride? I do. . . .
'Til death do us part. . . Will you?
A shared home, a shared bed,
Shared joys, shared sorrows,
New places, new faces discovered together
Room for two in this shared home.
Changes come in these years
Growing up and growing older
New friends, new fights
Drawn closer still as changes come.
Two became three when the time felt right.
So many doubts until the day arrived
His eyes, her hair-- their child
The two are still one, but two became three.
