hand in hand we go


backwards and forwards 

i want to tumble sideways into you 

and spread my hands on ground

outstretch my fingers and reach for something i can’t quite hold 

i hold myself up to the light

like i’m under a microscope

and scrutinize to find the edge of a seam that runs alongside the edges of fabric

linking together 

like layers

i say hey meet me at the parking lot

and there we go off to see the world on another adventure 

and all i bring is this small bag

because everything i need is within my hands

don’t have to walk fast to get where we’re going

get there in our own time 

and take it slow

because we like to enjoy the scenery

along the way

clouds and brilliant blue sky

it’s sometimes quite breathtaking


you see it too

i know you do
