and then...

Rick, Erin, is this the ending you were hoping for? I suppose we each dream up our own endings. Here is one possibility. A conversation can take many turns.

As the sun nudges
the low horizon to the music
of the early dawn

and I slide my cool-slick,
dew-footed presence
alongside your sleep-warmed
self in the sleeping bag

thank you for not asking
me to explain where I've been
all this time.

Rach-OK, that's worth pondering. I am so smiling and so stumped as to the millions of possibilities here. Yes, I like the ending, but hope you just went out for a pee. ~rick

Rachel, that was so sweet of you to do that. Thank-you. A lovely end. I find my endings are sad too often. It's good to have a little happiness in the world. I'm touched.

I wonder how I got from there to here... something soothing in Christopher's words warmed up my cold feet, I suppose. So it felt safe to come back, even though it's morning now and the fire has gone out. :)
