Poem for a Wedding

On this sacred day, let a woman marry a man.
Let the blue sky kiss the golden meadow.
Let the sun caress the full moon with pure light.
May the Salish Sea offer ancient stones for blessing.
May gentle winds play among fir and maple trees.
Heaven and earth might touch today.
Christ meets Magdalene in the garden.
Krishna calls Radha with the flute.
Two families return to one.
Let our hearts rejoice in the feast.
The fruit is full, the nectar is sweet.
Let this woman and this man be married today.
Let the blue sky kiss the golden meadow.


At Nicholas' & Kailan's wedding, each table with her water color of a bird. My poem at the ceremony.
