Silver Splendor

The big ole moon
shines down on me tonight
and you...
it gives your body a silver cast
lyin' there...big as life 
on our blanket on the meadow lawn
the night is warm
yet cool on our skin
your head on my arm
your long hair smells like lavender
your laughter is hearty and unrestrained 
as it carries across the lea
your voice is smooth
mellifluous
our clothes are folded over there...
and we...naked...warm each other
as we chat about
love...life...family...baseball...the moon above
I could listen to your Southern lilt for hours...but not tonight
I'm distracted as hell
by the feel of your body exciting mine
we touch and tingle as we talk
ready but not rushed to love
but...soon...
the night's so bright
I can watch you lips form every word you speak
you're beautiful
wonderfully made
abundantly blessed
a coyote howls in the distance at our moon and his...
crickets chirp and fireflies twinkle
in this meadow we share...
an airplane flies overhead...
its vapor trail silhouetted in the argent moonlight
suddenly we're silent
not for lack of words
but our souls are whispering
we dare not interrupt
we, spellbound...fix our gaze
and know the time Is right
our time is now...
you raise a knee
I lean to kiss your waiting lips
I lie upon you waiting willingness
soon...we are magic in motion
and our sounds join
the cacophony of the
nickelic night...
