The Long-Married Couple
Like overlapping lettuce leaves
Each shaped by and shaping
So are their hearts and souls;
Each one to the other
Melded over time with interconnection
That no amount of detangling
This fleshy spiritual mix.
A compound so complex
No science lab could replicate
This subtly sturdy, ethereal state
Of interwoven corporal stuff and holy love,
A creation only God above could make;
Together strong as steel,
Yet peel the one away
And surely both will break.
CARRIE DANAHER HOYT is a life-long lover and writer of poetry. It is her humble opinion that poetry is the highest form of human communication. Poems (she says) at once highlight what is unique and what is universal in humanity; the bond between writer and reader is intimate and sincere (kind of like Facebook, only better).
Carrie lives in Massachusetts where she is a wife and mother of three school-aged kids. To pay the bills (as her poems don’t yet do this) she works as an estate planning attorney. Beside family and poetry, she loves travel, volunteer work and concerts.
