Religious and Spiritual
I believe poetry to be especially spiritual. David
wanted his wedding vows to include a passage from the bible, so I turned to
Proverbs for inspiration (and went from there).

What can I say? Absolutely brilliant. Just a last minute thought I
was originally married in a civil ceremony on 25th Oct 1997 does this now mean I
have two anniversaries to remember!!.
Clouds paper would be brilliant please and I would love it autographed and to
see as you put it "the cutting room floor".
I would be delighted if you published it on your site or in book form in the
Sands of Time.
Once again brilliant :).
Many many thanks
And after the ceremony:
Allen the poem was received brilliantly and everyone loved it and
gave out a few of your cards as well so hopefully you will get some business
out of it as well.
Take Care & God Bless
