Night's Lover

Natural life

When darkness falls, She strolls across the rosy stream left behind by sunset, eyes already roaming the horizon.

Her inky hair streams out behind her, a waterfall of indigo.

She watches desperately, pacing back and forth, waiting for her silver lover.

His heralds twinkle his approach, and then he appears.

His magnificience causes her to shiver, with fast-moving clouds scuttling across her velvet skin.

Each night, they meet, and their slow, sweet kisses move the very tides of the earth. 

Heaven bends to shelter them, and their steps move in that eternal dance that time can never change.
