Will It Be Enough?
As the heat of day is flung
into evening's dusky sky,
I, beneath straw-brimmed hat
glance askance at you, reach for your hand,
point to soaring pelicans and sea birds
as they pass over palms, masts,
and the settling sun's eucharist-like offering -
sigh, turn into your shoulder with a slow smile
made of our joys, sorrows, sweat and tears,
our yesterdays, our bright tomorrows -
and know it will be enough
to sustain, nourish and replenish.

This is for "Imaginary Garden of Real Toads - Get Listed - Summer" We were given 12 words and I used 8.
I just got back from a mini-get-away. Can you tell? :)
