Archaeology

The day we found the muddy puddle.

Your wellies dancing

under a silent sky,

the imprint of a hawk

swirling overhead,

the honeysuckle in the hedge.

Your feet so much smaller

than mine, and no way to keep

those blurred boots beside each other.

Bone fossils, the ridges of where

we once had been,

you already tearing on ahead.
