Early marriage is a wetland, a marsh

of co-mingling reeds, breeding birds.

Late marriage is two feathers finding

the border of lake to forest.

  1. Beautiful. I’m still untangling this one (and that’s the fun of it)!


  2. The late marriage is rather more enigmatic, which may well reflect the situation in which mature lovers may find themselves.


  3. Oh, I did like that so much! Succinct, clever and insightful.
