Deafening Silence; redemption painted in yellow hue

We went for a walk today.  
together.  He pushed me.
and we enjoyed
silver-haired squirrels
and turtles at water’s edge.
is this redemption; the acceptance? 

in borrowed chair,
he asked me to give it a try.
life made easier
I do not know where this goes.  
The walk was beauty and free.  
My hesitant pause.  

My heart in sun;
hidden by shadow
tangible silence

and then,

touch, like charcoal on fingertips!
