(Stock image. Image description: a funk shopping bag rests on a white table set against a painted yellow wall. An art piece on the wall behind shows two figures walking together – with arms around one another.)

 

Beauty

See her
Spend the last coins
Out of her
Merger means
More than the rest combined
This treasure
See him buy milk for his neighbour
See them
Bring a bag of groceries by

See them count the
Days
Unfurling
With each dawn

See them long to
Hug
Yet apart
Friends fast
These
Many years

See care
And help
From
Six-feet
Afar

See relentless love
To keep and care for
One another
Together
While apart

See
The other
Eyes
Meeting
Minds
And
Hearts

See them find ways
To measure
Time differently
This time
Together

This will be the time we talk about
For years to come
When we can once again
gather
fully

How will we name it?
“The time we were apart”?
No .. may it be ….
“The time we pulled together”
And
“The time of unexpected beauty”
