finding it

it is not in the tone of his biceps

nor in the definition of her legs

but in the tone of their voices

and the definition of chesed*

she keeps him honest

he lifts her self-esteem

she holds his attention

he’s the source of her gleam

he forgets all else

when she enters the room

among the weeds of her life

he is the bloom

they are each other’s treasureScreenshot (183)

by anyone’s measure

to one another they devote

themselves, to share the boat


*hebrew – חסד
