A Wedding In Your Heart

 

There's a wedding in your heart this morning.
You are invited.
Each breath is a bridesmaid.
From the lofty pavilion of your thoughts
to the alter deep inside your chest

is a long way for a beautiful bride 
to walk without giggling.
Your mind shows up at the reception
like someone's uncle, just to drink 
the body's overflowing joy.
Never underestimate the sacrament
of meditation, the marriage
that reacquaints estranged cousins
under one family name, "So'ham,"
uniting spirit and flesh
in a vow of wonder.
