Yes No Poem


Yes No Poem

We stand together
at the end of a pier
looking out at a
clear, quiet lake

I ask you a
yes no question
Swim, fish, or
wait for ice
and skate?

If no, then…
Simple gratitude
For time shared
Lessons learned
Opportunities offered

If yes, then…
More, please …

You reply
without hesitation

We sit down and
splash our toes
in the crystal-clear
waters of eternity

And wait to skate
