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.

Knots  

  by Bridget Visser

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,
Tied together,

Forever.

Measure our love with a nautical mile.
Throw the rope into the rushing waves.

Catch the wind,

Hold the sky,

Sail away.
