Mountains to the Sea

This poem was written by my dear friend Bron (and my bridesmaid) who read it at our wedding in 2008:

Love is a river connecting the mountains to the sea

Two sacred places

Two unique people

Joined by love

Fueled by an endless cycle.

Love is a river connecting the mountains to the sea

You may find her on a mountain peak

On top of the world

Basking in the beauty of the clouds

Clothing the valleys.

Fed by the sunshine

And changeable skies

The wild soaking rains filtering

Through the mosses

Etching their pathways to the river.

Love is a river connecting the mountains to the sea

You may find him on the ocean

The world laid out around

Revelling in the crystal depths

And the expansive horizon

Exploring the secret coves

Rocky pools

Washed by the waters

Navigating the storms

The salty sea embracing

New life brought by the river.

Love is a river connecting the mountains to the sea

You two have chosen to take each other

To your most precious places

To share the exhilaration of open spaces

And the passion and fury of each

Passing storm.

You are committed to explore the depths

And intimacy of the river

That connects your souls

Offering up your spirits to become

Part of this endless journey

Cleansed and transformed.

Love is a river connecting the mountains to the sea

It seems appropriate to celebrate

This marriage in Hobart

On the river

That connects our mountain

To the sea.

Bron Kellett – August 2008
