A Picture From The Beach

An old woman
Guiding her frail husband
Out of the waters
With secure arms on shoulders
Walking backwards to the future
Both laughing at eternity
Their eyes never wavering from each other
Perhaps they never have
As they dance this slow waltz once again
Deeper and deeper
Into the shallower unpredictable now

I love them
And thank them
As a young couple
Take their place
Tender soft hands
Gentling the unborn heir
To the sun
