Everyday Writing: Chapter 14

* Wrote this seeing a picture from a wedding album. The picture had lights strewn all across a pathway flanked by trees. I imagined the man writing this to his woman as they begin their life together. 

One more poem buried in the drafts and resurrected fakely as 'everyday writing' *

That day
in the forest grove
while you spun dreams for us
my limbs were aching after our walk
you wanted to hold hands
and walk some more beneath the stars
I preferred the shade of the moon
by the glimmering pool
the silence, and you...

And today,
as we begin
as man and woman
a journey
a long walk together

A walk beneath the stars, did you say?
