Poetic Thursday: Zzzzz

Welcome to September, and we’re beginning the month with our usual Thursday poetry. Each week, our friend, Pam and her ginger kitties,  provide us with a photo for the following week’s poem.

Here’s this week’s photo:

And this is my poem:


I spent last night awake and fretting;
we wanted ours to be the perfect wedding.

She has my heart, so I have no doubt.
But I’ll be so nervous, hope I don’t pass out.

What if my voice should falter
while saying our vows there at the altar?

But the wedding went off just as planned.
Now she’s my wife: I’m a lucky man.

Reception time with family and friends,
love all around, the celebration begins.

No sleep last night, and the stress of today,
yes, I dozed off, I’m ashamed to say.

It was a quick nap, and I woke up soon,
sure can’t sleep through the honeymoon!
