Love poem - 3.25 #sol22 Story Challenge

For fifteen years, watch me chase her,
a pedaling, schussing, hiking pair.

She's a wild rose--neither insane nor reckless,
but at her best outside false boundaries.

So I recommit as clear as crystal
on this day that marks our marital ritual.














Behind-the-scenes note... I drew inspiration for these lines from three symbols associated with this particular anniversary milestone: watches, roses, crystal.

  1. What a lovely ode to your partner. My favorite stanza:
    She's a wild rose--neither insane nor reckless,
    but at her best outside false boundaries.

    This tells me so much about her, the deep knowing of her you possess. Beautiful slice that says so much in few lines!
