Well, it seems unbelievable, but today marks forty-five years since I was married (March 27, 1976). No, I can’t celebrate being married that long. The marriage lasted sixteen years before I returned to the US from England without my husband (he refused to live in the US). It was another two years or so before we were officially divorced.
I wrote and first posted this poem in 2011. I feel it will one day find its way into a story.
For now …
It might be
she had dreamed up
green and pleasant hills.
to pick them that way,
some warmth to
open them slowly
to this day.

And it fades away like morning dew” ©Artwork and writing, unless otherwise indicated, are the property of Diane M Denton. Please request permission to reproduce or post elsewhere with a link back to bardessdmdenton. Thank you.
