Bride

a poem by Alexander Doss

Standing,
in the fading sun
beneath the early
stars and the
yellow lamps
that light one by one.

Geese bear witness
As they waddle past on
Tiny orange feet,
As our hearts untwine
Under the
Misty blue sky.

Your supple mouth
Pinches tightly shut
As you lower your eyes
To the ground.

Lifting the lace high up
Over your head you
Go off to be a bride.

It's funny when we look back
and see how an innocent private fantasy
can go off and take a little ride
then come back with us, as a bride.

Antonio Gil Replied to Scribe 1 year, 7 months ago

Beautiful, dear Scribe. Your poems are better than those I post smile

Scribe Replied to Antonio Gil 1 year, 7 months ago

Thanks, Antonio... still, absolutely not. You have brilliant posts and since your sets inspire the words,
I'd say, they complement each other... let's just thank the Universe for bridging brilliant shots and words
together in ways that add to the virtues of beauty, peace and harmony to our world. XOXO [I've somehow lost some of the commands here including use of icons- it may be due to all the chaos here, I don't know, but it doesn't matter- I'm happy to be back]. Have a blessed day!
