advent journal: evening walk


    we were walking
    back to our hotel
    as the moon was
    climbing the ladder
    of night above us

    we were walking
    down the avenue
    against the current
    of tourists and taxis
    leaning into the wind

    we were walking
    away from the show
    we had come to see
    full of the laughter
    and lightness of life

    we were walking
    into a night that will
    give birth to the day
    that takes us back
    to what home holds

    we were walking
    as we have for miles
    and years together
    down the path of
    a well-worn love
