Shades of love

Shades of love

With silver light
           the sun sets
handing the day
           to night

in the darkness
           your body my horizon
your murmur
          sound of the sea

the moon hides
           in the tall trees
their branches
           winnowing the wind

love’s simplicity
           defies definition
but my heart
           never tires of its song
