Beautiful Two

They seem to have travelled quite a distance
with a trembling stead and a weary disposition
They are holding each other by the arm and
going somewhere in the vicinity

Even at the dusk of their lives
they seem so in love
so comfortable with eachother
so singular together

Beautiful two!

It makes me think
how complete is this number
how sufficient!

One will always be lonely
stiff and seemingly unfriendly
Where two, lovely
flexible and so amiable

Numbers have always had
a lot of significance for us
from auspicious marriage dates
to a healthy bank balance
but looking at them
i guess no number
possibly be more beautiful
than the number “two”.

(This was written seeing this really old couple who every now and then come across walking together in the locality I stay in.)
