Ingredients for Two

Written for:  Poetic Asides #492 – Write a marriage poem.  The poem could take place at a wedding, be dedicated to a couple about to tie the knot, and/or be an ode to marriage in general. Or maybe you consider marriage a bad thing. Or possibly your poem looks at marrying two things like peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter and chocolate, or peanut butter and peanuts. 

For you dears about to marry
time  to share burdens you carry.
Discuss important decisions,
avoid those small collisions.
Mastering communication
will save you aggravation.
Patience, love, and understanding–
a toast to you both, a long life span.

Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 492

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.

    If I were ever to contemplate marriage again (doubtful), my “interview” questions would probably send the very nice guy screaming off the cliff. The first time around, there was no discussion of crucial issues–guaranteed failure.
