spun in the sun




 
saw a picture of a swollen sea
pregnant with the deepest hues
it reminded me of that day
when we
deep in love
graced the ocean
 blue
 
i,
 tried not to
sink or swim
just kept my head level
with the sun
while
the waves tumbled us
around the shore
like something rinsed
  and
   spun
 
that day in summer
long ago
when sun melted hearts to heart
it's where i go
 to rest
- my love-
when the waves
drift us apart

I got chills reading your poem, Alexis. So often in marriage and in love, it's necessary to go back to a special memory to get us through rough waters. I hope you're well and enjoying some sunshine there in CA!
