Wedding Vows (Haiku)

Updated on July 12, 2012

Why Wedding Vows For A Haiku?

Throughout the course of my life, I have had the privilege to have a front row seat in watching a beautiful example of marriage and what it should look like. This example has been my mother and my father. My Mom and Dad have gone through many trials and tribulations. But, what couple doesn't? These trials have grown them closer together because they are able to learn from them. I have seen countless number of times, sacrificial love overflowing from one to the other.

Sacrificial, or unconditional, love is one of the strongest qualities a marriage should have. This love is the glue that keeps a relationship blooming well after the wedding vows have been ceremoniously stated. Wedding vows, in my opinion, are an everlasting concept in marriage. They shouldn't miraculously disappear after they have been uttered in the church on the wedding day. These powerful words should stay cemented in the couples minds forever and their actions should show it.

Why have I chosen a Haiku for wedding vows? I wanted to challenge myself to come up with a 17 syllable image to portray this powerful and beautiful concept of marriage. So, I dedicate this Haiku to my parents, because they have truly shown me how to live out the wedding vows I will one day share with my spouse.

Renew Those Vows Continually!

      Josh, this whole Haiku is totally true for a successful marriage. I am floored at such a young age and that you are not married yet just how truly wise beyond your years that you are. Keep up the good work my friend. Very much enjoyed, voted and shared too.

      Josh, this is so truly sweet. I like your simplicity and appreciation for wonderful things in life that are so important. Marriage and family are a holy unit. Love, trust and appreciation are the main factors in achieving a happy relationship. And yes, you are right, it should not last only that one day. That's why we call them vows, it's meant to last a lifetime. I will post some of my poetry soon, though have never tried Haiku. Best wishes to you.
