the sight
of couples
walking away
tugs the heart string connected to the finger
that snaps the camera shutter

the trust
that leads those who love
to grasp a hand and walk,
just walk,
anywhere, as long as
the one knows the other is alongside
by the warmth of that clasped hand–
maybe that trust inspires the
desire to memorialize those who love
and walk away together.

Maybe the desire
was born long ago,
when a tender
grandpa took the hands of two precious little boys

who trusted the man
who trusted God
to take his hand
and walk anywhere
