As They Once Had (Day 324)


In the old days sunburnt 
large-knuckled powerful
he slowed down so 
pale and thin
she bowed her head 
her mouth 
smiled at the corners
they walked easy together
swinging out of the corner 
of his eye and the sun 
sparkled like music on her 
gilded lashes
she tossed her hand 
toward his
fingers intertwining naturally 
as breathing shining again 
as they once had
