When Two Equal One       (Elfje series or singles)

Partners

Who knew…

You would perfect

Cover thievery to an

Art?

In 

Deepest sleep

I am woken;

Thunderous lion night breathing –

Yours

Happenstance

Coincidence, chance;

Once two strangers

Took respectful bonding vows –

Marriage

Over

Forty years

We have created 

Our own semaphoric love

Code

Reputation

Ours secure

Thriving with humor;

Boundless, breathless, blissful, bonding
