MY COUSIN’S WEDDING
My cousin’s wedding was an extravagant carnival. The only child of her wealthy parents, books of check were autographed to celebrate her union to her fiancé of 6 weeks.
The reception was filled with foods from all over the world; champagne flowed free like the River Nile. The plutocrats and silk stockings were in attendance. It was an event to behold…and after much eating and drinking, we were entertained by fire breathers and dancers who rolled and twisted to the music of Africa’s greatest voices…The long night ended with amazing fireworks…
Interestingly so did the marriage…
POEM- SPARKS FLY HIGH
Brilliant sparks fly high
In a brief moment of passion and intensity
Blue and pink hues of desire dancing across dark city skies
Love soundly reflected in two bright eyes wildly burning free
god- like beings colliding as night falls
