just me and you

early days, me and Jim and Tucker, Gulf Shores
Just Me and You

Our love
So true
Was new
Like morn-
ing dew
Just me 
And you

Wind blew
We flew
So high
Oh, my!
Us two 
Just me 
And you

We cry
We die
We give
We live
A long
Repeat-
ing song
Just me 
And you

I wrote this poem in response to a prompt in How to Write Poetry: A Guided Journal with Prompts by Christopher Salerno and Kelsea Habecker in the chapter on the Rhythm and Meter, which invited me to  write a poem about someone important to me that mimics the rhythm of my heartbeat (thu-ump thu-ump).

Below are some bonus photos of us two together.
