Crowns

Crowns and incense dreams,
ancient incantations…

She sees herself
in a pill box hat
and creamy frock
alluding to an epoch
of Audrey Hepburn elegance,
with inequality and innocence;
a bouzouki band
communal platters
on long tables,
generations arm in arm
dancing matrimony’s blessings
for the couple…

May abundance, peace
and love embrace them
all their days.

  1. It’s that inequality and innocence that marks this poem for me…albeit lovely…that tiny dart of poison ..oh, the thoughts, the pleasures, the irony!
