Beach Wedding


The wedding went perfectly. The weather was balmy. A light wind blew. The music was  furnished by the surf. It was a small group only family and friends. A notary republic performed a short but poignant ceremony. The simplicity and beauty made it one of the best  I've ever attended.
It's not their first marriage, but I have no doubts it will be their last.

I am Love

Some say I can fly on the wind, yet I haven’t any wings.
 Some have found me flowing on the open sea, yet I cannot swim.
 Some have felt my warmth on cold nights, yet I have no flame.
 And though you cannot see me, I lay between two lovers at the hearth of fireplaces.
 I am the twinkle in your child’s eyes.
 I am hidden in the lines of your mother’s face.
 I am your father’s shield as he guards your home.
 And yet….Some say I am stronger than steel, yet I am as fragile as a tear.
 Some have never searched for me, yet I am around them always.
 Some say I die with loss, yet I am endless.
 And though you cannot hear me, I dance on the laughter of children.
 I am woven into the whispers of passion.
 I am in the blessings of Grandmothers.
 I embrace the cries of newborn babies.
 And yet….Some say I am a flower, yet I am also the seed.
 Some have little faith in me, yet I will always believe in them.
 Some say I cannot cure the ill, yet I nourish the soul.
 And though you cannot touch me, I am the gentle hand of the kind.
 I am the fingertips that caress your cheek at night.
 I am the hug of a child.
I am love.
