TOGETHER: Walking - Part 1


Getting colder
with winds picking up
and leaves swirling
around us,
we stride
hand in hand
or arm in arm
if the gusts are high enough.
Walking together
after the dusk of Summer fades
and the dawn of Fall lightens up,
we're heading
nowhere in particular,
just enjoying the outdoor sights
with new insights on how much
we love each other
and thinking of ways to keep warm later
on this Fall day that will become night.


Brisk winds and dark gray 
with no Sun just clouds
on this Winter day
in which we've picked up the pace
to help stay warm,
still arm in arm
for another outside appreciation
of God's creation
and the ability He gave us to walk.
Walking together
means we're not alone,
not in body, mind or soul.
We stroll along familiar places
seeing some down right chilly faces,
our own being colder than we'd like.
But, the cold gives us an excuse
to down hot chocolate
then dive under the covers
and learn how to thaw Eskimo pies
by interlocking our thighs.
Our hearts light the Winter night
and melt us down like candle wax,
but, by the next morning's light
we're still here, warm and just as bright.
