A Shower

Pale white-rimmed, glass lantern

Hanging over aqua-blue seas

Smooth, blush-colored candle,

Unlit, awaiting it’s potential

Accompanied by the soft, full bloom

Of iridescent-colored petals

Waiting for me.

 

White lace that clings and shapes

Diamonds that settle comfortably

Atop of collarbones

White, heeled shoes that clack

Excitedly against tiled floor

Pacing, anxiously awaiting

The arrival of guests.

 

Last weekend was my bridal shower and everything felt like a wonderful dream. I was beyond blessed by my family and friends. The decorations were lovely, the games a blast, the food delicious, the gifts generous, and the company priceless. I hope to always remember it as it was, a wonderful day. 

My best advice to any bride out there who is dealing with the stress: be sure to put aside your expectations on big days and simply focus on being in the moment to enjoy it. Things will always go differently than we planned (but that is not always a bad thing). If you are anything like me, you will plan and plan and plan and plan and plan. There’s nothing wrong with being a planner, just remember that on that day to let go of your plans and let it be. With that attitude, I was able to truly and entirely enjoy my Bridal Shower completely, even when things did not go exactly according to plan.

Poetry

Waiting

I’m waiting

For you

For a blue sky

Reflected on an azure lake

I’m waiting for you

For a walk down the aisle

Lined with pale pink petals

And rusted lanterns

With flickering lights

I’m waiting

For you

For the first dance as you

Swirl me about the wooden floor

As layers of lace and tule

Twirl about our bodies

I’m waiting

For the words

That proclaim our everlasting love

For the kiss

That seals our dedication

For the tearful send-offs

And then

Dimmed

Lights.
