Describing Gold

It is the feeling of hot water falling across your skin.

It is the smell of humidity in New England during the fourth of July.

It is the smooth curve of an old wedding band still sitting on your finger after twenty-five years and counting.

It is the taste of success as you pay off your credit card debt, or student loans, or win an award for your work.

It is the sound of quiet after a long day spent around too much chaos.

It is the color of your lover’s laugh as you sit together trading stories and watching the sun go down.
