Steady Rhythm

You will make known to me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy

— Psalm 16:11

These long morning paths

as we mark the growth of trees

and new blooms, as we pass

homes of long-time neighbors

and those still unknown  — 

we have tread these steps

for years, ghosts of us 

hang in the air, the we 

of twenty-seven, thirty-three, 

forty-two, and so many

more ages as we treasure 

the cozy of our conversation,

a language we have been

creating since we first met—

how sweetly our love revels 

in this steady rhythm of living.

—C.L. Fisher, August 2022
