Sitting next to you
Feel the need to hold your hand
Fingers clasp for warmth

    I’ve stumbled upon weddings in several places in the world (most notably in New Zealand and Mexico), and started snapping photos, and no one ever shooed me away. I think newlyweds and their families are so generous with their love that it never occurs to them that even uninvited guests could be unwelcome!

      Yes–I tried not to be too invasive, but there was certainly a contagious happiness that I felt needed to be captured (or at least attempted to capture). And I do recall your haibun about the wedding in Mexico; it was one of my favorites. πŸ˜€
