A Weekend Away… off the grid

At The Bar

Dear J & M,

Thank you very much for a most fabulous weekend away,

off the grid,

in the luxurious surroundings,

of the pleasure of your company.

.

Tables were turned,

in an unexpected manner.

Through a different window we all looked.

.

Footloose,

fancy-free,

timeless and gridless…

you took us out of our daily grind,

and inspired us,

like bubbles in champagne,

or

freshly brewed coffee,

for two tired souls…

espresso, cappuccino or macchiato?

.

At times we may seem as though we are,

wanderers in a Milky Way,

floating on the Moon,

lost in the nebulous,

in need of a centre of gravity…

.

There is nothing more grounding than love,

and your love,

made of earth and sky,

nature and nurture,

nourished,

and replenished the weary.

.
