Celebrating fifteen years
Of marital bliss
Walking up the aisle.
Taking those steps around the sacred pyre.
Listening to holy words being chanted
As a youth lost his bachelorhood
And a maiden her ‘I am still single (carefree)’ status.
Did it matter
That cultures differed,
Two people took that one step to
the dusty doors of a bright beginning?
The music that played
In the humming beats
of two happy hearts
Created cheerful caressing notes
In fluttering mind and raving soul.
Made love to passionate emotions
Bringing into existence joy, fun and mirth.
The dancers dance in unison,
Falter a wee bit,
Acknowledging their imperfections
With grace, humility and affection.
The ballet of life
Coaxes us, mate and me
To ever keeping dancing the steps of love.
Care for a dance, comrade?
The dance of love?
