the ceramic hearts seem brittle yet strong 
sound soft next to the other  .. much like my 2012
 
a year of  whispered concerns 
in sickness and health our vows remain

a season for fresh peaches
found along a dusty texas farm road
 he picked out a bucket of sweet summer fruit
 while the simple vines climbing the fences beckoned to me
 light through each leaf  in curve and vein
strength in the curls reaching . holding
a simple stop on the road of life
