love

between wake & sleep
soft kiss on forehead, blanket tuck
threshhold of sweet dream
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~walk a country path
amid the dying season
wrinkled hands entwined
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~no greater love
daily dying to selfish ways
for another
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~endless circle
metaphor of love's mettle
with this ring i wed
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wonderful combinations of photos and poems. The wrinkled hands and mettles are the images that mean a lot to me. Thank you. My One Deep Breath is here.
