Lovers in Treble

A graceful dance across the floor
is resonating in our arms.
The music begs us ask for more
when swelling notes announce the end.
So we compose another score
and base its movements on our own.
The harmonies we’re looking for
are melodies of subtle charms,
their lyrics sung by our rapport.

Hearts Hear The Song

Under sparkling stars in a summer night heat,
together we dance in the shadow of trees,
two hearts in the moment deciding the beat.

Branches sway with us to a soft, rhythmic breeze.
A chorus of tree frogs sing heartfelt delights
to balance a fervent and starry-eyed tease.

As if we are victims of foresty sprites,
we find ourselves gliding across earthen floors
with movements more graceful in nocturnal lights.

The music crescendos as passion explores
two lovers engrossed in romantic rapports.

Declaratory Judgment

Your insightful eyes are wondrously wise.
Through my thin disguise from lingering lies

and senseless suspense, you quickly condense
deep-rooted defense and offer immense

inspiration to stay my stagnation,
love’s arbitration on firm foundation.
