A Tenth Anniversary-Happy Ending Poem for My Husband from “Disaster and Harmony: A Poetry Collection (2019)”

“You have taught me how to swim again

and we come full circle resiliently,

just like high and low tides

blend together into swells.

In this harbor,

we reinforce each other

with similar rhythmic fluidity,

and I am buoyed.

Forgiveness is

a natural outflow of commitment,

just like the

reinforcement

of our vows–

and our past and current selves

lap against us,

shaping our direction into

a kind of kingfisher future–

turning choppy waters into glass,

gliding us smoothly towards the horizon,

intact together,

within and without,

on and on,

until we slip ahead,

just we two,

into a new ocean,

having finally mastered this first one.”

-pg 49, “Disaster and Harmony: A Poetry Collection (2019)” by Marie K Johnston/Kristen M McCurry

I love Chris McCurry forever, no matter what..
