The best of Mother Nature’s beauty
peers at him over the rim of his glass.
The candle flickers from a slight breeze.
Conversation has been minimal
as their eyes soak in the beauty...
A distant balladeer
brings them back to the moment.
“Another glass of wine?”
“We could watch the fishermen
unloading and cleaning the days catch,
but honestly I have better suggestions…. “
“Perhaps a walk along the beach?
Maybe a carriage ride?
There’s a trio performing in the hotel lounge,
if you’d care to dance?”
“My room has a fully stocked bar
with a large balcony
overlooking the coastline
and the stereo has all the greatest tunes.”
room service is exquisite….”
"Of course, , , ,
if you’d prefer, , , ,
I’ll take you home.”
As she reaches for the key card,
her eyes hold his
as they silently float away on gossamer wing,
