Blue band of water, a constantly shifting
silent accompaniment, as you have been to me
since we were married.
Where do we go from here
who've come so far?
One and one equaling the one of us? On the rise, your arm tucks
into mine. The wind kicks up,
fracturing ice in the branches above.
The river carries on below.
