New year, new start, new prompts and I still haven’t got my own weekly prompt organised. This one is for dverse.
In the beginning there was me then there was you then there was you and me then there was us. We went forth and multiplied and then we were a multitude. The seeds scattered and put down roots and perhaps one day there will be new shoots and the multitude will become like the stars of the firmament and the sand of the sea.
The wave moves ever onwards, like the wind, ever the same, increasing and adding to the one whole. For each day begins like the first, a new start, a fresh chance to look into someone’s eyes and say, I choose you, now and forever.

blackbird eyes the same dead leaves
beneath damp and brown shredding
into crumbs of earth—young snails
