“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.
a natural outflow of commitment,
just like the
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,
within and without,
on and on,
until we slip ahead,
just we two,
into a new ocean,
having finally mastered this first one.”
