She sits there majestic in the sunshine.
Curious about those around,
He sits behind her.
Prompting her discreetly  
They move in tandem.
Their presence together
United by an unseen force
of mutual respect and love.

I’m overwhelmed by their presence.
as individuals and as a pair
Their auras emitting solidarity.
Strengthened over the years.

I wonder if they’re friends.
They definitely appear to be the best.
Or maybe a married couple
But to me they look like

They are both.
