A Declaration of Love

A spark and a flash

That’s all it takes

A moment of heat

A production of flame

Wax softens and melts

Guided by your hands

Droplets drip and drop

Puddling in a sea of blue

Golden brass awaits

Cooled and prepared

Standing vigilant

In my fingers

Then, ice and heat meet

Clashing against one another

Revealing a declaration

Of our love.

***This poem was recently inspired as my fiancé and I prepared our Save the Dates for our upcoming wedding. We decided to seal each card personally with a wax stamp. It was a ton of fun, even if he did momentarily catch his finger on fire, and we love the results. Hopefully our friends and family will as well!
