A Dreamed Wedding

WEDDING DAY

Your day at last,
With me a witness.
I choose carefully
The clothes I’ll wear.
Nothing too flashy
Next to white satin
And lace.
I didn’t plan for rain.

No gentle kiss this
Wall of water.
Who wears boots to a
wedding?
I wade barefoot to
Your side,
White dress gray now.
Slicked clothes reveal
Naked bodies.
We didn’t plan for rain.

I’ll hold your hand,
Keep you from floating
Away,
While we wait for
Guests and groom
And god.
No plans, just rain.
