Sunrise, Mumbai

Halfway around the world,
is pulling
your eyelids

Halfway around the world,
is throwing
its gemstones

Halfway around the world,
is nudging
the curtain aside

Halfway around the world,
your lips 
softly lift
speaking her name

Halfway around the world,
you bounce
out of bed
with the sun
in your stride

As you race
full pace
toward Siddhi
this night—

Where darkness
will gather
her head
toward yours
and everything
is a wide
open book

Halfway around the world,
in despair's old haunt

Like a touch 
from a friend
on a star

Aniket and Siddhi, married this day

Thank you so much for this. A perfect thing to read on the morning of your wedding day.

Siddhi loved it too. :)

So very excited to fill in the pages of our open book. Wonder where we'll go from here. :)

A million different places, all with her by your side.

Going to sleep now, but when I wake up, it'll almost be time. :)

Sending love and good wishes and most of all--joy.

This is your day, my friend.

It is good Sarah that you can feel pleasure for your friends half a world away. It is also good that you have the words to glorify their union.

I agree, Mark. Thanks for reading them, as always.
