Confetti - Poem by Jeannette Heywood

Light and white, fluffy, like snowflakes.
Flower girls stoop to pluck them for keepsakes.

A rainbow of paper o'er us floats down.
It sticks to our hair, your sleeve and my gown.

Some falls swiftly to ground, a rainbow path we now tread.
Some slowly, gently, flutters overhead.

With each handful, blessings they bestow.
For true love between us ever to flow.

A colourful cloud the two of us covers.
Soul-mates, now spouses and forever lovers.

We watch paper charms of good luck glide us by.
Our future wishes and dreams alongside them fly.

    Wow, you were really lucky. I got pelted with rice when I was stupid, er, I mean married... :) my right eye still twitches a bit after all these years.... Pretty poem though, a bit mushy I think, but certainly young couples ought to live in such a world... (Report) Reply

    Thanks John. I wrote this one whilst reminiscing about my daughter's wedding. I hope couples of all ages can live in such a world!
