Love This Game

For my husband, a true fan.

By Heidi UnruhPublished 2 years ago Updated 2 years ago 1 min read

It's like this:

After a long climb,

we finally reach the upper deck

and step through the arch

into another world --

the green field spread below us

like the prologue of a new book,

the geometry of a story to come;

the hum of leisurely bustle,

the wheat-field undulation

of bodies stirred

by the same breezy dream,

all immersed in endless sky,

a gentle blue ocean

that will glide us into purple majesty

and secret stars.

It is our world,

our story,

our passage into a time

unknown yet already beloved.


this is what it is like

to wake to a new day

beside you.
