The climb

Was not


It’s bumps;

A journey

Worth the view.


At last

We were there

Near the edge;

The jump enticing.

I tumbled and turned,

Moments moving; begging

The words tugging as I



Waves broke below and gulls cried out;

The wind buffeted around us as I breathlessly said,

‘I love you’

Not giving you time to respond lest you felt obliged,

I held you.

The big ‘L’ fluttered above us.
