For Debbie On Our 36th Anniversary

To the Meadow

June mornings are cool at this altitude

The nearby peaks are still streaked with winter white
as we head off down the trail

Pine branches frame the breathless mountain sky
wild anemones fill every patch of light at our feet with amethyst

Ahead, in the meadow, the stream with its load of snow melt
is rushing through red willows in bloom

We speak quietly as we walk, though there is no one to overhear,
sharing our yearning, our unspoken hopes

And while my old bones complain with every step,
as if I need reminding that a step down now will be a step up later,

I push on with you, my love, beside me, drawn by the beauty of the morning
matched only by the beauty of your smile
