Orchid Dancer

After the wedding between Sophia Wood and Erik Saucedo

Story of the Marriage of Two Souls

The orchid dancer
worried all night
that the storm
would keep the two souls
from being married.

But the jumping waters
that dance into the sky
did not come.
The love of the village
was so great that it
pushed back the whirling winds.

The two souls were
finally married,
and everyone celebrated
long through the night.

An eagle had flown over
earlier that day
and told us it would be so.
