Promises on the Porch

Prompt--Life Event Poem

Spent the day
Sweating, sweeping
Setting up chairs
Caterers circulated
Small group took
Their seats
With five short steps
A blessing said
A tug on tulle before
Promises and rings exchanged
New stepdaughter
Age three
Whispering insistently
That the bride take
The little girl for a
Bathroom break

True story :-)


  1. So sweet, Sara! Love this! Congrats on your April anniversary, too! There are quite a few of us April brides, apparently. :-)

  2. Thank you Pam! April is a beautiful month :-)


Your words are wonderful! Thanks for popping in--I'll be over in a snap!
