I would love to offer my poetry to you for special occasions. I think it would be lovely to inscribe it onto the marble knotted wall art here or have it set onto the invitation paper and framed. I hope this is inspirational for you brides to be.

We tie knots in circles,
Trying to catch birds that will only fly away.
The wind will whisper:
I am empty without you.
~We will hang pieces of driftwood~
Our first gift for new life.
Old polished absence where pain once had a place.
Now smoothed over like a painting,
like glistening wings pressed out of snow.
Salt waves and sand heal wounds that are as old as all the earth.
You are my chance at peace.
I must go through war first.
Tie me into you.
Pull me close that I may wash up on your shore.
Entangle me with knots that will bind us eternally.
Broken and healed,
A sand dollar heaven frees five doves.
You and me in the tide,
Measure our love with a nautical mile.
Throw the rope into the rushing waves.
Catch the wind,
Hold the sky,
