Contemplation

Sitting on the porch
listening
as the day's light
slowly fades

The song of crickets
surround me
as the evening breeze
caresses my face
carrying away
the last remnants
of the day's heat

Gazing into the sky
as the stars wink on
one by one
my gaze is captured
by the silver moon
rising majestically
over the horizon

Quiet moments alone
when my thought turn
to she who waits

When the evening wind
caresses her cheek
does she feel
my fingertips?

When her slender arms
wrap warmly
around her shoulders
does she feel
my tender embrace?

I wish I could walk
the frail bridge
of the moons rays
and go to her
whispering softly
I am here Love

Love this one, Gary.

Hey, change the title to "Tranquility" and you've got Gloria's challenge covered.
