Last summer, I attended my brother’s wedding in Florida. It was a beautiful ceremony on the front porch of a bed and breakfast in West Palm Beach. The reception afterward was held behind the establishment in what they called a backyard bar. With plenty of food and drink and dancing to music by my brother’s old college band, despite the heat, humidity, and mosquitoes, it was a lot of fun. This inspired the following poem that appears in the fall/winter issue of Magnets and Ladders. You can read it at http://www.magnetsandladders.org .
Swathed in yellow, she glides to the altar,
attended by bridesmaids, also in yellow,
carrying bouquets of yellow flowers.
A blackbird sadly calls
as if knowing this is the second time around,
wondering if this time, their love will last forever.
Is there a particular wedding that stands out in your mind?
