Default Simple Together - KBR

our chairs are always close
the only space between us
is the quiet of this house

when the day is finally over

we touch beneath the covers
so light you scarce can feel
the hand you know so well
before 'good night' has faded
you slip into a dream

we speak exhausted sighs

and always look askance
to keep from meeting eyes
but the truth is there unspoken

every afternoon

we rock away the time
from our porch we see the wind
moving through the wheat
like a playful ocean god
tossing golden waves

in the setting of the day

orange sunlight streaming through
the fully open windows
shines on wooden floors
dark brown and deeply scarred
with years of steady use

A single low ray

passes through the crystal
of an heirloom decanter
and prisms on the dusty wall
beside an ancient mirror
that no longer gives reflection
all the light that comes this way
is caught and not sent back

today, we stayed indoors

but the wind across the field
is gently rocking in our chairs
already the wind knows
how to rock an empty chair

our chairs are always close

the only space between us
is the quiet of this house
