A New Life
Standing at this entrance way,
As One, will be joined this day.
Joined as one this day
Pure love delightfully displayed.
Tears of joy shed all around,
Souls collide in sparks abound.
Watch the sparks from this collision
Can’t be stopped that’s love true mission.
The current builds, this pair transformed
And now, a new bond is formed.
Formed today this bond is spoken,
With vows never to be broken.
Hard work is needed, and a grand wish,
For a new life started with this first kiss.

I wrote this poem in October after attending my niece’s wedding. The first 2 lines were a song in my head, and the rest just came after. I was playing with an idea for a form, to work the first line of the next stanza from the words of the last line in the stanza before. It was a challenge, but fun. And I rather like how it turned out.
The pictures at the beginning and end of the post are of my niece, Christina, and her husband Colin, Mr. and Mrs. Murtagh. The mosaic is my parents’ wedding picture from 1954, and my wedding picture from 1997. In my wedding picture, my mom is pictured far left standing, and my niece was the flower girl. She was 10 years old.
