Love’s Shadows

Love’s Shadows


The shutter falls
on daylight’s quest
The orange breast
of evening glows
The shimmering ocean
beckons thoughts
Of eternal peace
and love

The waves embrace
the warm sand
And sliver through silver
silica stars
To unearth the secret
hidden below
Revealing deep thoughts
of another time

Love is eternal
caught in the waves
The whisper of a wind
The kiss of evening
captures the soul
And reveals its yearning

Love is this moment
The silver on the sand
The caressing of a palm
Scattering moonlit shadows
The dream of peace
in an evening embrace
