Stones crackle underfoot

Stones crackle underfoot
An expectant melody
As the moon lets fall its silver light
Through the darkened gum trees
Overhead myriad stars pass
Love’s sentinels brightly shining,
Jewels in the ebony ocean
Through night’s waves slowly dancing
Shadows meet to linger
in this breathless silence
Immersed in the moon’s
Vast shimmering embrace
Shadows still intertwined draw away
As the sun yawns sleepily
\Climbing leaf and bough
Over the top of every tree
Until the dew’s glistening kiss
Lights on the rose’s upturned face
Held forever in this sacred moment’s
eternal grace
