Wedding

Our son just got married.
(A bride we love,
an island on the central Maine coast,
two families and a few friends, all beautiful.)


When someone pledges faithfulness
to someone you love—
our beloved son, so blessed!—
you receive a gift.
When someone extends love
toward the world you love
you receive a gift—
you, beloved, so blessed!


When you are faithful to another
you make the world whole.


All of life is the celebration
of the Beloved’s wedding to the world.
(Let’s dance, yes?)
