’16 Soundtrack

When we dined, 

…we were more than meals prepared 

Steam creating small wispy clouds in the air

When we said nothing

…we were more than ambience of street lights  and silhouettes of neighborhood trees

I ate with my hands these memories

Needing them for some fond recollection of the past

I scraped the sides of the bowl –

For one more sweet melody of laughter

Spilling out of the car

Running down the hall

And walking over slick grass

We are in this moment

Looking for ourselves

Trusting new tightrope

While wearing worn shoes

When we listened 

…our words weren’t as shaky anymore as time went on

When we listened

…the nights of summer

Had their own soundtrack.
