You took me for a drive
and we pointed out the places
where something added colour 
and texture to our life.

And here we are, growing older 
by a river, surrounded by trees
and wildlife; only yesterday, 
you pointed out a heron flying by. 

This morning, the sun is shining;
I can see wood pigeons kissing 
on the cable overhead, a plane 
drawing chalk marks in a clear sky,

underlining this love poem that I
offer up to you in azure blue.

One third of the way through NaPoWriMo 2022, we are writing Sunday love poems! Sadly, I missed the opportunity to photograph the pigeons – by the time I found my camera, they had flown away. I found the cute image by Miha Rekar on Unsplash.
