I married the man of my dreams...

29 years ago today! Happy anniversary, my love. 

Here's the poem I wrote in honor of our 25th anniversary, which appeared in Aoife's Kiss, December 2003. To date, this has been my only poetic foray into "mushy" stuff, but the occasion seemed to warrant it.

~ The Lovers ~
by Karen A. Romanko

She pulled the orb from the shining waters
She sent the raven to fetch the sun
She cast the stones in a perfect circle
She called him forth with the breath of love

He placed the orb in the shining waters
He sent the raven to fix the sun
He drew a line in a perfect circle
He called her forth with the breath of love

They plied the orb in the shining waters
They sent the raven to fill the sun
They joined their arms in a perfect circle
They spoke their lives with the breath of love
