Mama Come Quiet..


The Nuptials of Cupid and Psyche

Saw it on the TV.. seen it in real life.. where marrying Tom says ‘who objects?’..

mama like a hen.. remembers child when eyes were clear..

Dad says ‘years ago.. before sex’..

Young woman is standing handing advice to her friends.. every shape and size of dream in white.. imagination glistens in young dreaming eyes.. images of brides and wedding nights..

Friends play ’til single ends.. lions in their den.. passion wins again.. life needs rain.. young love with a smile.. now and all the while.. love shows the way.. as wood goes with the grain.. 

Dancing with the bride Father glows his smile is wide.. will they have sons?.. a ‘namesake’ cool..

Best be in this moment.. feeling for your little girl.. no time for ol’ dad to act a fool..

Wedding day is winding down.. voices quiet.. laughs.. all thanks for gifts in love exchanged..

Here it comes.. it always does.. a distant relative.. tells with example how diapers were changed..

Mother next time someone known to you has a child.. who is planning nuptials in June.. take a lesson from the parents.. good.. bad tame or wild.. betrothed in teasing..

baby brother moons..

If you have a gift for relatives soon to be wed.. if you knew them when they were first-born..

Those family stories.. where everybody laughed.. guess they are a brand of family ‘corn’ 

Restrain yourself leave on the shelf those front-off times so passed.. futures begin for a groom and bride..

Heart and brain.. sun or rain.. a lovers’ peace that lasts.. love with respect flows forward like a tide..

Thought.. ‘For all I have learned.. for all the promise found in poetry and music.. my thanks is most for the love of my Woman.. as I am her man.. there is so much.. she is a universe.. that shows me’.. Peace Tony

About cryinforthedyin

I write philosophy and poetry. I postulate solutions for problems..I find similiar things in history to compare to present day, hoping to find a solution to the seemingly difficult task of giving and receiving love. I play music. Blues harp, piano, guitar, electric and acoustic. I sing..I love to sing..Peace Tony
