Sky prematures to midnight tinged charcoal,
Leaves continue to burn green.
Fear and promise overlook the lush valley,
The steep slope only a misstep away.
Hands, hearts grip tightly to faith,
Minds analyze, reassure delicate souls
that grow stronger each answer,
Comfort erases doubts,
Unstable balance of love broken,
love decades sustained,
love slipping, missing, returning, revealing.
Love raining down
arduous humid exchanges of tongues, lips, skins,
Condensing on lenses,
Love captured in stolen moments,
Preserved in guarded chambers,
Ours lives and breathes,
has a life of its own,
brings us together
as rain to the forest.
