Just a moment -
This November day the sky is cloudy with patches of blue.
A light breeze stirs the empty branches of the birch.
At the feeder, a small chickadee with blush tinge on breast, calls to a mate.
Across the street, a boy sits on a step, arm flung over his dog, joy on his face.
Our forty-third wedding anniversary:
marked with yesterday's walk through Pioneers Park,
celebrated this evening with dinner at home and hearts full of memories.
Were we ever so young?
