LJ Entry – “Wedding Poem”

Several months ago, I was asked to create a poem for a coworker’s daughter’s wedding.  I asked for details: how they met, colors of the wedding, etc. etc., and came up with this free-form verse.  He’s a police officer; she’s a graphic designer, and they met at the Greenbrier United Methodist Church.

Holly and Clay – June 25, 2011

A quiet knight in dark blue, with silver shield

An artist, working with a spinning color wheel

Meet at the “Green”, under a cerulean sky

A hint of pink…a blush…a smile

Slowly ripens to heartstring’s rose.

Pink, yellow, blue, colors from the field

Two people tell each other how they feel

Surrounded by friends, with family nearby

Walking arm and arm, up the aisle,

Filled with the blessings that God bestows.
