The monochromatic grey
of sky, water, and rocky landscape
lays before us
in strict opposition to
the vibrant aurora that surrounds you
hand in hand
as we walk north
(and away from home)
between worn stones and broken shells
on the beaches of coastal Maine
well before spring and just after
I love you
