Wedding Woes

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Tuesday Writing Prompt
(posted by Devereaux and Beth)

"Write a poem using the words, 'bolt' and 'veil'.

Groom–nervous, pale,
right eye twitching.
Bride–second walk
down the aisle, vanilla
ice cream dress.  Less
ornate than her first
gown with its seeded
pearls, and long, lazy
train.  Music begins.
Veil of silence hushes
roomful of eager,
smiling guests.  Necks
turn as the bride strolls
gracefully toward her
groom.  His hands begin
to shake, and rivulets
of sweat bead his forehead.
The bride approaches.
The groom bolts.

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.
