Twilight Beach

Twilight Beach
Form: Epistle Sonnet 12

Fiery feathers ripple on sunset’s shore
As our hearts greet the beauty of the night
Thus bound by love with new dreams to explore
And I knew I could never ask for more
Your impressions left swirling on my skin
You gave me the wonder of love’s delight
And so my heart became your own device
While destiny shone like it was brand new
And on the cold nights I feel you close in
To snuggle up against the winds of ice
And I don’t care if they think it’s a sin
Remembering the nights that felt so nice
I gave you my heart in love ever true
Hold it gently, baby, take it with you
