… between pages, you are.

(for Nitz,
on Our 25th Wedding Anniversary,
September 8, 2007)

i turn sliver pages of Time silver;
i see a journal of you.
there you are,
between pages of shifting shades
in our joined lives –

between ifs and buts
you shimmer, among
creased chapters on doubts and fears.
(you, my true: a chameleon of hue.)

between whys and hows
you linger, bookmarked at muted
qualms and queries needing answers.
(you, my lark: a question mark.)

between wherefores and therefores
your icon dwells.
on billowed folds and yellowed molds
you mellowed.
(you, my altar: you of the Altar,)

the living and loving you!

– between
wife and husband
is alter.
