Premiere

The Promenade, 1918, by Marc Chagall

Today is the beginning
One grand moment that ensures
You'll have eternity

Roll out the red carpet
Shine the light on your premiere
Today is the beginning

Reflect upon the past
Picture what may come to be
You'll have eternity

Prepare to improvise
Life won't always follow script
Today is the beginning

The great romantic leads
Step into supporting roles
To last eternally

Dream together in the clouds
Grounded in serenity
Today is the beginning
You'll have eternity


For my sister's recent wedding

  3. The stanzas remind me of the way I write senryuu, counting the accents (3-5-3) instead of syllables (5-7-5). Best wishes to your sister and her leading man--we had a wedding anniversary not long ago, and have long years of happiness on our minds.

  13. Just make sure to read this to her before she gets ready for the wedding! Otherwise, the tears of joy your sweet words will bring will ruin her makeup!
