Poem: Perfect

Perfect



He watched her dancing in the sunlight
singing words he did not understand,
a single tiger lily in her hands
in a field of red and blue and green,
her black hair unbound,
caught by the wind of her motion
swirling behind her in an ebony stream,
perfectly happy.

She saw him standing in the shadows,
silver and red and amber seriousness,
his strong hand resting on the hilt of his sword,
vigilant and proud,
guarding her as she played,
perfectly content.

She stooped to pick up her basket,
he strode into the light.
Dancing for them as they met,
the breeze blended their hair together,
silver and black, two halves of one whole –
their eyes touched  to sing their own song
which each understood completely.
saying nothing more than a smile,
she handed him the lily,
he handed her his hand.
Walking down the path,
they both were both happy and  content,
knowing what it was to be
perfectly loved.
