i see these chairs everyday. his and hers, not matching, not expensive, just a place to rest at the end of the day, before the mosquitoes come. they move around the yard, following shade or sun. they say time taken. time taken to speak to each other. time taken to sit under the sky. time taken to just breathe.
neighbors stop by. dogs. cats skirt the edges of the yard. conversations are held. how are yous. you're not gonna believe thises. glasses of wine sit in the grass. strollers go by, parents waving. joggers, walkers. kids with basketballs. skateboards. more neighbors, more dogs. laughter.
just a couple of chairs.
time for each other and the lives they lead.
a scene from the nearing end of day.
