Wood-smoke

“Let’s go for a walk……

was what I had planned to say.

I’ll gently take

and hold her hand

then find a quiet spot and

ask her

to ask questions……

was what I had decided to do.

 

Open my heart

to her a little more

with the hope that she would too……

was what I had thought would

happen!

We walked, sat, talked and

came back

to sit and talk some more

without holding hands or

questioning or opening any hearts.

 

Later

I dozed a little

wide awake with the knowledge of

fingers in my hand and her

hair smelling of wood smoke.

I think

there was some

communication!

 

45 years on and the smoke still lingers………………….
