Hearts, drink love in hungry gulps,
breath, kiss, and caress, quicken
sparkling needles dance inside fingers,
summer breezes float sweetly in warm night air.
Sand scatters on times shore,
wipes smooth under oceans of passion,
surrendered souls rise like storm clouds,
rain and lightning, blast an orchestral symphony.
Sunlight spills, free and loose into the morning,
a warm orange and yellow embrace follows,
blue shadows of swaying trees in moonlight,
Hearts twist together like roots and soil.
