brief summary

On the Occasion of a Wedding is a collection of poetry celebrating what it means to truly love another person. From the soulfully simple to the humorously erotic.

From the deeply spiritual to the painfully profound. Composed as a wedding gift for a dear friend, the book is divided into four chapters, each blending a variety of literary styles.

Flores Caelesti (heavenly flowers)
Caelo Marique (sky and sea)
Amor Insanus (crazy love)
Pluit et Lucet (rains and shines)

Readers are taken on a heartfelt journey through love’s blessings, joys, and tears. Because it is the sting of love that makes it so beautiful.
