The Perfect Day

A poem about a day going smoothly

She waits

crowned in bridal illusion

under glowing cobalt fruit,

twigs ribboned together

beneath cotton-colored clouds.

***

Harmonies tangle—

hollow echoes

carrying centuries of tradition

Mendelssohn's wedding march,

a high-tech rebirth

on electric speakers.

***

Sudden blustering—

lightning forecast

creating ricochets of thunder

ripping through cascades of rain

hailing Captain Noah

***

until she stops,

takes a deep breath

to tame her wild self

and tells it, Max-like,

to be still.

***

Floods recede—

music chimes.

a woman emerges,

her candy-apple hair

crowned in roses and lace,

facing the bride waiting for her

cocooned in swathes of white.
