The Wedding Braid

As you two lovingly lay
The strands of your lives over each other,
Plait a life intertwined,
Coils reach back to misty ancient past
Curling around families, through lands, from cultures that spawned you.
Sends tendrils to the dawns ahead.
Flow out and back to circle through,
Touch and separate, wind and roll,
Bind and release.
Two souls twist and knit a continuum.
Mutual participants.
Hanks of who you each are
Wreathe together in sweet simplicity.
Today this congregation of like-minded hearts
Weaves with you a celebration.
The endless braid of a marriage
Well laid

(For Isaac and Kristi)
