a cool evening breeze rustles dune grass.
two crescent moons hang low over the sea,
their silvered halos kissing the ocean
like a shower of diamonds. she emerges
from gentle waves, her naked body glistening
with sand and sweat as each step drips
liquid poetry, catching my breath in both hands.
my thundering heartbeat drowns out all sound
as she falls into my outstretched arms.
