Marriage... Fixed In Time - Poem by David Whalen

With gathering wonder
I take within my eye
an ocean of diamonds
And rainbows that hold up the sky

Cliffs that stand sentinel
With feet in the sand
Time-wizened boundary
Between sea and the land

Mist is the icing
Frosting the wake
Of waves shattering the glassy
Silence as they break

Fog rides the tide in
With buttery grace
Then steals out again
To it’s hiding place

Give to the shore and the sea
Praise and genuflection
For the ability to eternally be
Wed… in geologic perfection
