Over the sand

They walked down over the sand
Close smiling holdng on tight
Her sandals held in her hand
Surf beating in careless might

Sun's flames were exhausted for 
Moon's nightly rule of the sky
So seagulls now left the shore
Once they gave their last outcry

At boulder's edge they now sat
He spoke her name and she his
But touch was best not just chat
Their love was sealed with a kiss

Exhausted she clung to him
In night's blindness touch was all
As they both hugged limb to limb
Consoled by the night birds call

As in classic tales steadfast
They strolled back over the sand
Hoping that their love would last
Fingers entwined hand in hand

  1. I love the real-life-fairy-tale tone of this poem... the delight in their relationship, even their fears that something might go wrong. A bit of anxiety is good to keep us on our toes... and holding on.
