CHAMPAGNE GLASSES IN ROSE PETALS

In the very beginning of summer I made wedding champagne glasses with rose petals for bride, groom and their witnesses. Ivory, grass green and gold was the color base in this wedding and all of those colors are reflected here.

Then the time stopped,
And it was love.
Because it stops only in front of love.

 
We could grab seconds like sand
And throw to one or another side -
It didn't have a meaning.
Petals stopped falling.
Iron didn't rust.
And we forgot how to count.

 
And that is the most beautiful here –
The love, it doesn't know how to count.
/Translated from poem by Latvian poet Imants Ziedonis/
