i looked at her as we sat
in the green space we made
beneath the tall shadows
of the urbanicity
the sun played with highlights
in her beautiful blonde hair
twinkling each shade as
solar fingertips weaved
in and out dancing.
i watched her lips softly spread open
revealing the warm presence
of her smile
and her eyes in simultaneous revelry
sparkled and gleamed in their
green with blue specks on the horizon.
the gentle way she looks over
the peaceful scene and then turns
to me, says I love you, takes my hand,
presses it to her lips, and with great care
and wonder places it on her leg,
caressing my skin with her fingers,
slow strokes invigorating quickened breaths
cooled down with a cold sip of iced tea.
slight breeze makes its way as the sun and the moon
change places, and we continue to sit
and watch the night fall in the wonderful
glow of each other's company.
