Silhouette

Silhouette

looking up towards 
cloud-forms  in the sky

many balconies
overlook our view


which one was ours
or the  neighbour's
it wasn't easy to see


home for two weeks
a place to put our shoes
to sleep and go again

when the sun came up
to warm our morning

so many cruises
distract passengers
from grim health news


we met a widow
cruising alone

her husband had
purchased passage
for them and died

and would have wanted
her to go regardless
