Marriage is a pairing, a union, no one owns this word.

Trees Marry

The grey fades
branches shiver together
in the morning wind
shaking off the morning dew
intertwined together.
glowing with the morning sun
the radiance beaming upon them
warming with its power
the two trees stand proud
their branches melded together.

Facing the world, standing proud
their leaves flutter gently in the wind.
for as long as they could remember
they stood beside one another
branches growing closer
interweaving, meshing
marrying.
becoming one, together.

Watching the world unfold
trying to understand
how this word
describing their union
became so complex
so embattled
when it is just a union
when two join
Marry
to become one.

How did this word
become so complex?
when it is so simple
tis a union
a pairing
two joining
becoming one.

Married.

      Are you all packed yet? Packing is lots of fun. Don’t throw anything out, you will find you need it in the new house, no matter what it is….

      • Packing one box at a time. Sad. Then happy. Then sad again. * smiles at new home*
        Returned from a camping trip with older daughter. Astronomy camp – it was fun *jumps up and down*
        want to go again.
        I have piles to throw, give away and keep- Sigh. Mostly old shoe boxes and clothes and toys that needed donating.
        *hugs back*
