Our feet sinking softly on the white sands,
of the peninsula’s carbonate shore,
our loving clasping hands,
we all of each other so adore.
Walking on land that the Miocene Epoch brought,
where rock is ground offshore, onshore and alongshore,
for each other we are fraught,
with gems of heart and mind, loving to explore more and more.
The ocean tide gently rippling o’er our feet,
and Helios gently kissing our skin aglow,
when we’re together, all is so complete,
and our feelings and thoughts simply flow.
The ocean air caressing our senses,
the sound of waves falling and nearing
the ocean mists on our cool skin condenses,
despite passions deep within us searing.
When Uranus is farthest from our Earth,
we shall stride together in harmony,
basking in each other’s mirth,
rivalling even the holiest matrimony.
At sunset, one of the gentlest kisses we shall share,
to each other we are eternally drawn,
resting upon our shoulders all of my longer hair,
until, emerging in the sky, the son of the Titanic goddess of dawn.
Hesperus, the evening star, mirroring our own beaming,
and later the waxing moon visits,
touching each other, proof of our not dreaming.
Eos, with her rosy fingers fidgets.
She opens the gates of heaven,
so that Apollo can ride his chariot across the sky,
the beauty of the night to us god-given,
our exquisite love as perfect as infinity and pi.
