Would you?

would you question someone so beautiful

if you knew you’ll always be together

warm as the insides of a snug hug

familiar in consent and in dissent

tenacious and trusting in times apart

pauciloquent in honey melded silence

interlaced for hours in contentment

intimate in the tracings of tenderness

assured your eyes can sleep because it is home

would you question someone so beautiful

when you know the answers don’t matter at all

This is not ~ a free verse

This is not a banyan tree
Her arms span a hundred years
of stories as you turn her every leaf
rustling up rememberances
from her soul as she smiles
or dabs a teardrop that drips
her secret sadness to be whispered into the earth
