Surrendering to the Rain

20190530_144120

Whispers in the mist, surrendering to the rain,

as the wind gently plays with the leaves

I suddenly remember

a younger thunder

when you and I listened

to those sounds, that story

only told by summer.

So young we were back then,

yet we do

still hold hands.

Healing Each Other

20170915_165528

When they first met, looking into each other’s eyes,

they recognized the scar tissue deep

in the other’s heart,

yet within the light

of their embrace

they held onto the healing,

actually

they healed each other,

so amazingly.

She Accepted His Shield

Grey Sky

When she found him she discovered he really was a warrior,

so she was willing to accept his shield,

having fallen into the strength

of his arms,

and he always found his answers

in the oceans of her eyes.

Together

they were more than just arrows flung

into the ambiguous,

learning that love is greater

than any strong tower

still clinging,

to the darkness.

A Walk at Sunset

Beach Waves

As seagulls peer into waves expecting the night to fall, an older couple are still holding hands, refusing to give up their walk, in spite of the chill,

in spite of the sun setting, they had seen enough of hell, to recognize the true treasure now. They would never let go of love, or each other.

The Intensity of Your Light

20170503_163308

With the intensity of your light, we enfolded into each other

sitting on the park bench.

We sat there remembering our journey

as you placed your hand in mine,

I gently caressed your face

you tucked your head into my shoulder,

whispering

your prayer for me.

Do you remember the azaleas?

Note: This is about a couple encouraging each other, through chronic illness.
