EDC Shorts: lines – prose – ‘poetry’ #21

Life’s Light


Grey autumn day

clouds as far as eyes can see

breeze swept trees shake off leaves

smoke swirls from log-fired chimneys


Arm in arm they walk

snuggled close to share their warmth

each complete with one another

for them there is no other


The path they tread now clear ahead

past diversions left behind them

a footstep from the door they pause

embrace give looks that say it all


The key their love he sweeps her up

lips touch across the threshold

life’s light within first sign of spring

winter closed the door behind them
