Day 133 – one week due the couple

Day 133
11:28 pm – 12:02 am

one week due the couple

on some clever evening
when the door may be ajar
for us to peek in
over your shoulders
we might
listen along
to splendor

for there may be no better sound
than the collective exhale
streaming above
a baby’s crib
after he
has settled
for the late evening
that quickly turned to
the light of morning

and no better meeting
than that of the gaze
between the two of you
in your weary knowing
he is calm for now

even if only for a few hours
you will rest
each in to
one another
wrinkled eyes the
wiser for the journey you,
gratefully,
share together
