… BETWEEN PAGES, YOU ARE.
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, my altar: you of the Altar,)
the living and loving you!
wife and husband
