NaPoWriMo: Day 3


   Of Veils and Nuptials 

Neatly the strands are caught up
In a doughnut shaped figure
At the top of the cranium
Of a woman whose face hides
unidentifiable, under a veil. 
                               
Tightly the lips of a pale figure
Are pressed,
covered in red muck 
That mannequins apply to find
Male figures and a veil. 

Golden shines the halo around her finger
Symbolising a bended knee and a movie scene,
Of rolling hills, and fresh air, and serenity
And smiles, and laughs, and cries
Of a moment veiled in awe.

Eagerly chimes a voice
Across the Basilica
Alive with proud relatives,
Of the mannequin who stands and cries
“Yesss!!”, hidden under a veil.
