Hopefully together

She moves in solid waves of hope,
weaving through her ritual
with the confidence of a lioness
determinedly walking through stalks
of grass, positive she’ll find sustenance.

Her faith sustains me, and when
I’m staring at weeds or corn stalks
she reminds me to focus
on what matters, leading me to water
where we wade buoyantly together.

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 12 years and 5-year-old son. I am a Tar Heel born and bred and watch every Yankees game I can. I'm still searching for my own TARDIS. My first novel, "The Alien in the Backseat," is available now! https://amzn.to/3oVCG77
