Last night at the Mannheim Steamroller show, there was an older couple seated next to me. They were so sweet to observe. They held hands and when he removed his hand to clap, she would then put her hand on his thigh. They were just dear to watch and inspired this tanka (which I wrote during intermission).
Endless love divine
Ageless passion for all time
Tender looks of love
A hand on a knee, so sweet
Thoughtful gestures, tender smiles
