my wedding day (4 April 2009)

18 Dec

in the morning
the thin veil to spirit
glimmers far off in pre-dawn

I am awake
  wide river awake
to a new husband’s bloodline
passing through my heart beats
a momentous pulse
  (anticipation)

residing in my breath
and out of my skin
the morning is light

I am valleys and mountains
  on earth and reaching
  for all the spirits that come, wishing
   me well, coming as blood, this day
    my wedding
