Learning to Endure

After Compline
you made me laugh:
gambolling up the aisle,
your bloomers
a flash of colour
upon the rood screen.

The scent
of sandlewood incense
on my fingertips
and your caress–
the taste of life
on a hallowed evening.

You have touched me deeply with your silent love behind all of this.

And oh! How I would love to hear you laugh.

Thank you Aims, and welcome back.

Alas, I don't laugh very often.
