In the tunnel with my love

At the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, Hannah has promised us twenty-two incredible places as poetic inspiration.

This week, Hannah presented us with the first of these: a photo of straight tracks running through a delightful spring-green tunnel of love in Ukraine.

the tunnel of love
can often be
a long and winding road
with twists
and unexpected turns
that bring
me back to you—
but if
the path 
of love

runs straight

how will 
we know

if it runs true?
