the palm of your hand.

A poem of Love. Please rate, comments are also welcome.

The breeze blows the grass-
in different directions.
Before our feet it sways-
as if taking us on its own-
secret path.
Making our way to the water,
the boat lying empty-
on the sea,
moving with the swells,
is waiting for us.


So we lay down,
and let the sea of green-
carry us where it will.
While the hours pass-
the day begins to fade,
purple streaks-
sprint across the sky,
dancing with the lingering daylight,
forcing it down eloquently.
A few clouds remain,
ebbing away slowly.


Gazing up at the sky,
so beautiful and dark.
Diamonds floating in nothing,
eyes wandering.
So easy to get lost.
It's so beautiful here.
I watched nothing else-
but the sky,
and nothing was more beautiful.


Lying in this boat,
alone on the water,
adrift in the current,
we are warm.
