It Takes Two

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm Poet – Epithalamium 
An Epithalamium is a poem usually written in honor of a bride and groom. But we’ll expand the thought in a way for this re-introduction of the Epithalamium. Write a poem to celebrate the marriage (joining together) of two somethings. Reese’s Cups are the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Could be ham and eggs, comedy and tragedy, Lewis and Martin (for those of us that know better). Let’s toast the happy “couple.” Toast and jam? Another great combo!)

I still miss Sonny and Cher.
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga-
what a pair! My sister
and me sharing a room,
our bed, an “L” shape,
calls to sleep coming
too soon. Coffee ice
cream with chocolate
syrup, head-freeze smoothies
of mango/banana, pushing
that straw into the cup.
Rocky and Bullwinkle,
need I say more? Silver
on black as you sweep
in the door. May you
be happy with whatever
is in store.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
