About to start a journey to the simple life with amazing husband and beautiful son. Passionate about ethics, food, creatures, the countryside and parenthood
I want the words to light on your shoulder
like a hand: touch but not take hold.
You understand they are no more than a gesture
between us and I have tuned my voice so low
no one else shall hear them: they are just for you.
Do not mistake them for intimacy however.
We are a long way off still - we have
a long way to go - the words may contain
an immoderate danger: words are so dangerous.
But if we are careful, if we do not make trouble
between us we shall learn to give them a name.
