The Marriage

A Poem By Clare Marie // 11/9/2010

*YAY!!  Apricotpie is still up and running!  Thank you James. :)  I apologize for being so far behind with both commenting and posting, but life has been busy.  I'd like to say that I'll catch up with commenting and such soon, but I'm in the middle of doing NaNoWriMo right now (why I decided to do it this year, I have no idea), and it looks like life will simply just get busier from here on.  Anyway, this is a poem I had to write for my creative writing class at my community college.  The style is based on an ancient Chinese form of writing poetry.**

 

White and black contrasting,
Pulled towards each other
By slender webs, invisible,
Formed of human bonds.
They meet and cling with golden rings of flame
While in their eyes they speak
A language of no words.
 
White is surrender,
We give to each other
Our inner self, the essential,
Black abyss of being.
The sun in our hands is a token of eternity
I hope to share with he who is
My special one.

I Love This!

I love this! This is what marriage should be...a total giving of ourselves. Great job!
