The Heart of the Matter

Wedding Day


If you, or anyone you know, is getting married, here's a poem I wrote that might be good to include in the ceremony.


There is a kind of dancing
not taught on Earth,
a moving together like tides,
a spinning in space, a turning,
ecstatic whirling through the place only lovers,
unconditionally loving each other, find.
This bodily prayer is the essence
of the marriage vow;
why flowers bloom, why children bow,
why man and woman grow infinitely
closer to each other
and eventually let go.
It cannot be learned -- only remembered,
the distant memory returning at moments
like this
when hearts are light
and love
is the only thing that matters.
