Street Lights

Street Lights

A Poem by lindsay

It is 1:00 am
and the street lights are slowly coming on
to lighten the black night.
They illuminate the sky as they take away the beauty.
There is only you and I
as we walk the empty worn out pathways.
Red.
Green.
Yellow.
Red.
We lay under the street lights watching the colors dance.
The asphalt is damp from the rain,
but it cools our hot bodies.
I follow you, as we walk to a place
that is unknown to both of us.
We lay  on the beach
and the gentle rush of the waves
gradually put us, almost, into that dream state of mind.
It is approaching sunrise
and  the yellow-orange sphere appears over the horizon.

What a beautiful night it was to spend with you.
I know, am glad to know, there are many more to ensue.

This is great!

You help the reader capture some beautiful imagery...
And all the better it is to enjoy it with someone you love. It's almost as if it is that person that's making everything come to life.

This kind of reminds me of a poem by Robert Frost. The Pasture...do you know it?

Anyway...this is beautiful!
Great job. Thanks for sharing! Keep writing!

Oh this is beautiful, I really liked this one
We lay on the beach
and the gentle rush of the waves
gradually put us, almost, into that dream state of mind.
It is approaching sunrise-
as the yellow-orange sphere appears over the horizon.
