Walking

We walked the marsh,
our feet finding grassy clumps,
glad to be in boots, dry-footed 
with the way the water 
was rushing through, 
the way love spans 
its islands,
frothing and  
sets root,
the way
no one 
escapes
the hearts' progress,
its minuet, 
love's arc,
At eighty beats per minute

we build a nest with
 our own hands 
without hurt or harm, or words, 
even
Where we could love
And not grow old
Where salt wouldn't settle
On the sand, devoid of weeping
Willow, feeding the
hearts' own hunger
