Partners

Using the stairway railing

For guidance and support

The fragility of aging movement

Fondly searching for the equilibrium

Her husband’s arm provides

Upwards they slowly climb

Confronting the effort in their learned security

Together entwined

Their discipline inspiring

The boldness of their task

They climb the cliff of stairs

To finally reach the pinnacle

Upon a concrete mountaintop of air.
