Sand Between My Toes

A poem on a seaside wedding

There's sand between my toes
And I'm standing here beside my man
Let the waves come up in flows
Hah, I'm showing off a perfect tan

Let the sun drench our guests
As we exchange our binding oath
The guys have tossed their vests
But we're cool and comfy, we both

Note how the vibration of the tides
Echoes the rhythm of our daily lives
A pleasant seaside wedding abides
To up the count of husbands & wives

There is warmth beneath my feet
And a touch of warmth upon my face
In a white sundress I am replete
My sultry locks enhance my grace

I am the blushing bride today
And he beside me is today divine
We were betrothed with no delay
And today we marry; a blessed sigh

Amid ocean rhythms, we tie our knot
Among those who love us, we unite
Beneath gulls who witness our lot
Husband and wife, in shining light
