This is a poem that I wrote for a friend’s wedding recently, to sit next to the wishing tree that they had at their reception.
Stars above wheel and burn,
Turning their dome above Earth’s cradle.
Sparkles on every branch, beloved memories.
See the wishing tree that glimmers, points of wisp light
Blessings, born of tender heartstrings and gossamer dreams.
From roots of love and truth
Shoot blossoms of happiness.
Planting seeds of joy, fruits of friendship.
