and love rules the day.
rainbows apologize for angry skies. ~sylvia voirol
out on a hike around the lake with the kinders,
and a is walking back with c, close by her side.
a tells me, ‘he says he wants to marry me.’
i ask, ‘do you want to marry him?’
a says, ‘yes.’
then a says to c,
‘and i will always sleep when you sleep.
and we could go to the park together.
and we can get ice cream.’
c says, ‘okay.’
as we all walk on, i think about how wise a is with regard to marriage.
if we always sleep when the other sleeps, go to the park together, and get ice cream,
we might have many happy marriages.
