Together, alone

No shadows in the field, save these two
We stand together, alone,
Our arms entwined
Our shadows merged around our feet
Casting an unused shelter.

We look to the horizon,
Through hedgerows,
Beyond the church
Its spire hosting a choir of blackbirds

Our longing like a beacon
Its light penetrating even the ground
Pulsing through roots
Shattering foundations
Can you feel it?
Will you join us? Together, alone?
