Today’s prompt is a Two-for-Tuesday prompt. For those new to the challenge, you have the option of writing to the first prompt or the second prompt–or even both if you feel so inclined. Here they are:
- Write a bright poem.
- Write a dark poem.
She was dressed in all white,
Her gown beautiful and long.
He was dressed in all black,
His face was weary and long.
She holds her bouquet tightly in her hands,
And her veil high on her head.
He folds his hands solemnly in front,
And hangs low his head.
She sheds a tear of joy,
For this is such a glorious day.
He sheds tears of sorrow,
For this is such a sorrowful day.
She stands before her priest,
Listening to her vows he speaks.
He stands before his priest,
Listening to the eulogy he speaks.
She leaves the wedding with a joy in her heart,
As the rice comes pouring down.
He leaves the funeral with a pain in his heart,
As the rain comes pouring down.
She begins her life with her husband,
Not knowing what will happen in 10 years.
He begins his life without his wife,
Remembering their life the last 10 years.
