Poem for a Wedding


Source: Google Image

It’s a fleeting moment–

a red sky at twilight,

rushing to the long night;

the last russet leaf

clinging to bough

as autumn inhales,

breathes out.

You know this, you’ve felt it

in the grey light of dawn,

in that pause

between waking and finding.

You’ve heard it whisper

through the dry grass

of summer–a promise

tossed on the wind.

Yesterday’s smoke

blows over fields,

tomorrow hides

inside dreams.

This hand in your hand

is the one, the only

true kingdom

under the sun.
