Pin It

lighter than air 

when the love between two people
reaches the speed of light
nothing can trip them
or make them tumble
not even a steep down hill run
careening through brush
hand in hand
cross country
jumping boulders
skipping along fallen logs
leaping the creek
sailing over ditches,
the day turning too soon
into twilight
then darkness
as they reach home
safe,

to realize a half-century later
how on that particular day
had their feet ever touched the ground
they surely would have fallen.
