A Wedding of Chance

A Wedding of Chance

Not so much a wedding,

but alliance of old money.

Trepidatious are the pawns

of this joint venture;

arrival to a new home~

stone turrets

golden candelabra

green trees outside the window

wealth and opulence.

All business ventures exude risk;

mergers fail or excel.

Wedding festival in June

forgotten by the November leaves

falling from the trees.

All that remains~

bare branches and dead ivy.

How can love bloom

amidst the cold rooms

of a business deal?

  1. Wow, I really like how you incorporated my image as a mental landscape to your clever commentary! Thanks for posting this on the Real Toads challenge

  2. I also got a strong sense of satire out of this, with the rather nervous looks on the painted faces–nice take, and good resolution, working in both images.

  3. i’ve talke to some indian guy a while ago and in india they still make these deals in some regions and are still convinced that love is more a decision than a feeling and if the parents make wise choices it can turn out well.. but honestly…glad i was able to choose for myself..smiles..enjoyed your take on the prompt

  4. kinda glad we do not have as many of those business deals here any more…i think they still happen among the upper crust at times but…how can love flourish in them…i dunno…my what a big hat he has as well…smiles.
