    Cross Cultural marriage - Poem

    From time to time my thoughts coalesce in a poem.
    With Rasa and my marriage coming soon the dynamics are up front in my mind.
    I'm 55, plenty of relationship experience and plenty of cross cultural experience, some education in the area as well.

    When we marry

    Two people join
    Two families
    Two tribes
    Two cultures
    Two nations
    Two histories join

    You and I decide
    WE will embrace
    ALL those truths
    In US.

    Rivers starting
    Worlds apart
    Find each other.

    Like the Nan and Yom
    We will become Chao Phraya.
    Our colours flowing together.

    For the rest of our lives
    Flowing to the sea.

    Flowing over waterfalls
    Drifting out into floodplains.
    Angry waters and calm.

    Deep places
    Where waters run hidden and true.
    Secret places,
    Only ours.

    When we marry
    We become
    A place
    Where old flows
    Into something new.
