Treasure Island

Maria Magdalena Biela


The Wedding Photo


They stood there smiling in black and white
holding their fingers tender and tight.
They knew the secrets of a past tense heart
they knew of a future 'till death do us part'.

They tell a story that starts with 'I do! '.
They dream of a lifetime witnessed by two.
They hold their crowns as King and his Queen
They know not that marriage is simply a scene.

She hopes to be mother and blessed to be.
He hopes to write poems and countries to see.
She loves to become a woman at last.
He loves her in the future, present and past.

They both look so happy and deeply in love.
They both dream of marriage as life in a grove.
They both do not know the 'I do' aftermath
for they both envisioned a different path.

    This is an outstanding image of two people, man and woman, getting married in the Greek Orthodox Church: King and his Queen in marriage. A story framed by 60 years of life together. Congratulations to the parents and their daughter! (Report) Reply

I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
