Captured Bliss

On bluff above the oceanís curl
a place of delicious wedding swirl
I watched the tide ebb with the day
and soaked in magic from sun rays

The bride in white was all a flutter
her mother set her gaze in utter
awe of scene beneath the knoll
where sea such magic display scrolled

The breeze so touched the gauze of veil
in graceful dance like ocean sails
that seabirds swooped to catch the view
of strapless gown and sling top shoe

This sparkling picture captured bliss
in a dance proceeding the wedding kiss
and from the sand to look above
was to look at just the start of love



 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)

Such poetic description.  Could almost feel that ocean air.  
"just the start of Love"  
one of life's sweeter moments.
Beautiful poetry.

 A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.

Martie,

        Pleasant surroundings well described for the making of a memory. Just lovely.
Were those gulls invited?

Denise- I'm soooo glad you enjoyed it a second time.

Danny--It was a beautiful time

Liz--the seagulls were there first, we were the uninvited.
