Wedding Words

This past weekend I was at the wedding of two of my favourite people in the world. A very lovely way to spend a few days. I think part of being a poet is not being able to turn off poetry so that everything you see transforms into words whether you mean them or not. Here are a few that subconsciously appeared fully formed during the ceremony.

Two Circles

A full score in two hands linked
rings pass one to the other
and cross in the centre – hold –
a twist, turn and then reform
into an infinity of their own.
Full circle overlaps and then
at the quiet heart, close held
metal dances a figure of eight
to spin in place forever. Still.

[Edited to exclude the line of another poem I was also working on. Oh the joys of mobile interneting. V.]

  1. The poem is lovely, but it’s this that caught me: ‘I think part of being a poet is not being able to turn off poetry so that everything you see transforms into words whether you mean them or not’. Well put and absolutely true.

    Thanks for the follow. I hope to see you wandering through.
