Two Hearts in Love

 

Two Hearts in Love

Would rain have made any difference?

What is grass without water?
A maple.
An oak.
Each would welcome it.

Allowed to flow, growth will
follow. A benediction.

Vows spoken in the open air would gather
on each raindrop, bringing life,
as each leaf, each blade, would
gather those raindrops.

Instead, those words were carried
by sunlight that shone on those
who welcomed them into their hearts, all
sharing in the love, this day.

Yet it was not sunlight, nor was it rain
that made this day possible.

It was two hearts in love.

  1. This is beautiful – actually makes me yearn for ceremony in the rain – love the thought of raindrops collecting/carrying vows to all surrounding plants (and people!)
    Wonderful photo, also. That would’ve been more challenging in the rain.
