As Seagulls Peer into the Waves

Beach Waves

As seagulls peer into the waves, expecting the night to fall,

an older couple refuse to give up their walk

in spite of the chill, the sun setting

her hand in his, still holding

having been through enough hell

to never let go of love

or each other.

Their twilight was always

the most beautiful.
