Love, romance /
we sat at the back of beyond-
where we listened to the moon
whispering with the night
and the wind sat still beside us
we ate chocolate;
snapping little pieces of dreams
and placed them upon each others lips
I held you in my breath for as long as I could
then released you, with a kiss
the palms of the river cupped its hands;
and carried us upon the cusp of a journey
-with our wounds drifting apart
we stopped. For a short while,
I rested my head;
gazing up, and saw a reflection of you in the sky
a constellation of stars, draped across your shoulders
as Venus rolled across your eyes
with your head sat beneath a crown made of clouds.
my twilight queen.
Your smile stretched as far as I could see
and drifted with me, further;
with our love drawing closer and closer.
violins played; echoing from a pendent
you wore around your neck
with the air humming in silence
gradually we were ambushed by nature
the sun pulled down, the back-drop of night;
dawn exploded with a chorus
and the grass flooded with green
doused in frosty lace;
such a beautiful element of surprise.
..and our hearts fell asleep
upon our sleeves

Nature mixed with love, magical word usage and the heart of the author is a combination of wonderful, breathtaking poetry!
This poem had me at the first word and speechless by the ending stanza, intoxicating poem to say the least. Just beautiful!!
Added to my faves as well! Been a long time not being able to read your poems Michael. I love this sweet and scenic piece!
