they are so in love, hand in hand like entwined roots
the umbrella is like a tree crown. The rooftop is
being pushed in between them to shelter the other.
A scene to the passby, which signify mutual love and care
they have came a long way, each day is another step
now they can't walk any more, even crossing a street
is like conquering mountains and rivers.
a car stops,
all cars stop
waiting for the two silver heads to go pass.
