Wedding Day Rain (and yes, there’s a poem in here…)

Hello to all you lovely people who follow my blog and to anyone who’s reading for the first time.

It’s a beautiful sunny day here in the UK, lovely weather for the many people lining the streets of Windsor to celebrate our Royal Wedding, Prince Harry and his bride Meghan. I can’t really remember whether I dreamed of my wedding day when I was a young girl, but I’m certain that if I did then the weather would always have been sunny. Rain on your wedding day is a complication most couples would prefer to avoid.

I have been married for 20 years to my lovely hubby, our time together has been far from plain sailing, but we have stuck together through all complications and have as solid a marriage as is possible. We did not have rain on our wedding day, we had snow, in April! But regardless of the weather a person’s wedding should be magical because of the actual marriage, not because of the sunshine, the fancy clothes, the guests, the party… the only thing that matters is that two people are making the commitment to be together forever. The rest is just inconsequential.

Wedding Day Rain

White dress and white shoes
rain falls from grey skies
splashing, puddles on the ground
green lawns morphing into brown
thick, slick mud, slippery and sticky
rain drips from overhead trees
from floral arches
and bunting clad marquees

White dress and white shoes
and wedding day rain…

… and then there’s you.
