It was early in the morning, before sunrise, of course, and Dilinea (pronounced dill-in-ee-uh) had woken up before Trinaple (pronounced trin-uh-pull). Because of this, he, Dilinea, decided that he would meet her, Trinaple, down at the water’s edge. He didn’t want to disturb her slumber and he knew that she wouldn’t miss this day. He knew that she would definitely wake up in time for what was about to happen. After all, they were about to profess their love for each other – a rather important thing to both of them.

They had spent a lot of time imagining and envisioning what this day would look like. They both knew that they wanted to do some sort of ceremony for each other without any guests there. This was their wedding day and they didn’t ‘need’ other people to be there to validate their wedding to each other. They understood that it was important to share this day with their family and friends, but before they would get to that part of the day, they ear-marked the beginning of this day for themselves. Just the two of them. They planned to go down by the lake and spend some time with just each other.

That is why Dilinea went straight down to the water’s edge. It is where they had decided that they were going to have this personal sharing time. There was something magical about the water, especially in the morning. It was always calmer in the morning. The sun had yet to peak out, too. Dilinea knew that there must be some sort of correlation between the wind and the sun because during the day, it seemed that there was more wind (when the sun was out). During these morning times, the sun wasn’t out yet, and the wind was very quiet. Nonetheless, it was one of his favorite times and it was also one of Trinaple’s favorite times – making it a perfect time for them to have their own personal ceremony.

Dilinea looked up towards where he had let Trinaple sleep a little longer and noticed that she was beginning to stir. A smile emerged on the face of Dilinea. It was all about to happen. The moment and the time that he had been hoping to happen for quite some time. Trinaple walked down to where Dilinea was sitting. She took up a seat next to him and looked out over the water. Dilinea could see a smile emerging on Trinaple’s face. He knew that this was a day that she had been waiting a long time for, too.

Then, it happened. Trinaple and Dilinea turned to face each other. Dilinea took Trinaple’s right hand in his left hand and Trinpale took Dilinea’s right hand in her left hand. They opened their own eyes and then opened their eyes again. And then they opened their eyes again. All the while, their physical eyes were open, but that doesn’t mean that their other eyes were open. They began looking at each other intently, but softly. Eye-gazing. They had long ago agreed that they wanted to spend a great deal of their ‘personal’ wedding time eye-gazing.

During this eye-gazing, so much was happening around them – but it was invisible to a physical eye. While they continued to look deep into each other, they were also creating a vision for what they wanted their life to be like together. It was almost as if they were communicating to each other through their eyes. Images would appear in each other’s minds, intentionally, of course. Dilinea would think up what he wanted their house to look like on the land that they were intending having. Trinaple would think up what she wanted the feeling to be like when they spoke and interacted with each other. Trinaple added thoughts about what she wanted their kids to be like. Dilinea welcomed these thoughts as he very much was looking forward to being a father. He added to these thoughts of kids by putting his spin on what he wanted their kids to be like.

Seconds turned into minutes, until they had nearly been there for an hour. To them, time was irrelevant. They could have been sitting there for days and they wouldn’t have known it. This was one of the most important parts of their wedding – creating the vision. Images were starting to come a lot less frequently and they knew that they were nearing the end of this part. Dilinea rose to his knees and leaned in to give Trinaple a delicate, but passionate kiss. He backed away and they smiled at each other. “I Love You,” they said together in unison.

Wow- I loved the ‘eye-gazing’ scene, I could picture Trinpale and Dilinea sitting next to each other, eyes locked and so much happening around them. What an original story and I have to say you have the most interesting and equally beautiful names for your characters! 🙂

Well thank you. The ‘naming’ is one of my favo[u]rite parts of the imagining. When it gets to the part of the story where the name is to be known, I really sound out (what I’m hearing) the person is to be called. I rather enjoy it. 🙂

With Love and Gratitude,

This is beautiful! I love the idea of opening their inner eyes and seeing each other for who they really are, not just the physical.

TheIntentionalSage - July 26, 2010

Ah yes, thank you. Seeing someone for who they really are (in essence, the same thing that you are looking back at them), can be a very enlivening moment. 🙂

With Love and Gratitude,
