In honor of our son and daughter-in-law's marriage (the wedding was July 21 in Vancouver) I wrote a poem based on their creative relationship that has developed over the years.
For Christopher and Catherine:
Perhaps if we could, we might hear your silent vows to each other…
Your laughter floats above the music of my soul, like a twirling current shaping a sandy shore,
One by one our notes appear, discovering the melody, understanding the harmony, measure by measure composing our love.
Your curiosity intensifies the depth of my dreams, like a rushing wind lifting the morning mist.
One by one our voices blend, discovering the melody, understanding the harmony, measure by measure composing our love.
Your devotion dances with the rhythm of my spirit, like a sparkling meteor streaking through the sky.
Rising in crescendo volume, our solos merge, forging a new harmony, measure by measure composing our love,
Our passion inspires the path of our future, like a soaring eagle swooping towards the precipice.
Our chorus encompasses us, combining our melody, intermingling our harmony, measure by measure composing our life.
Our promises glide freely and willingly to each other, like rippling circles reaching to a sheltered bank.
Hand in hand we will create our arrangement, within our harmony, measure by measure composing our life.
Our future beckons, revealing our possibilities, like a sunrise shimmering beyond
Together, composing, creating treasures for a lifetime, measure by measure our marriage begins.
