Arabesque

by Marla Chalnick

(I wrote this poem about marriage in 2001. I wanted to share it with you today on the occasion of my 45th wedding anniversary)

Beach Couple
Beach Couple

Come dance to the music

And we will glide gently through life

Collaborators, knowing the next steps

Allies, swaying, twirling, holding on

Partners, shuffling when we grow weary

Come dance to the music

And we will glide gently through life.
