The Couple

They perch on the edge of the shore

perfectly familiar


and comfortable

in each other’s company


Their eyes are fixed

in meditation on the sea

are they studying the rushing waves

or scanning for fish

or perhaps

like my partner and I

they are out for a morning stroll

giving thanks for this life

of simple grace

the beach

the sea

the air

the company

nothing more

is required

of this divine blessings
