She never failed

to float him beyond

the current of his day

to slip away with her

curved sides just right

perfect in their holding space

to part waves

when he needed release

she took him far from shore

her motor always finely tuned

of that he made sure

never to neglect.

  1. I thought this was very cleverly written of a relationship that works – one where two people know when to come together to support and encourage each other, but also know when to give each other space. Beautifully written again, Alicia 🙂
