Toast to the Wedding

Our champagne toast
to Jamie and Steve!
Planets rising to the top
of their own geography.
How beautiful Jamie is!
A toast to creation
for its amethyst!
The landfall of morning.
A toast to the man
acknowledging his guests,
a calligraphy of goodness!
A toast to caring hearts
who sit before crystal and spices,
and the carefully chosen blossoms
of vases.

A toast to destiny
for its loving kindness.
A toast to life,
interesting life,
and to love and courage
in its making.
And,
for better or worse
the roads it created
down which Jamie and Stevie
go.
And,
a toast that they find their own,
a toast to love,
and the sun on rising,
and a prayer
for their safeguarding.
