A Night in Mazatlan—A Poem

Updated on March 8, 2014
Source

When the chilling winds of winter come,

I often drift off into the shadows of a memory—

where silhouettes of beauty

and echoes of whispers long gone—

Recreate the image and warmth of Stephany


Source

A soft warm breeze on a summer night

moves golden streams of moonlit hair— in my reverie.

As I reminisce in flashes

and rhythms of heartbeats felt—

on a night in Mazatlán—a night of epiphany.


Source

Sounds of nightlife surf a gentle breeze.

From nearby streets, guitars add music to the symphony—

a concerto of wonders,

flows softly through the balmy air—

replaying a sonata of divine harmony.


Source

As we walk along the water’s edge,

A mist from splashing waves touches us playfully—

like the essences of nature,

pursuing souls searching for passion—

guiding them gently into the hands of familiarity.


Source

In the comfort of the summer night,

we rested on the seaside sand— entwined in ecstasy.

The tenderness of caresses

rendered feelings of desire for more—

until rays of morning sun stirred our slumbering tranquility.


Source

.

In the stillness of night, broken silence raps softly,

And I return to this existing reality—

Your slumbering form still present,

our pledges still loyal through time—

I gaze at the face of love with deep sincerity.

      Outstanding and beautiful poem, Don! You make the romance of that time you write about in Mazatlan come alive. We cam almost hear the guitars and splashing of the waves.

      Simply captivating, it reminds me of one such encounter in Hawaii. I will never forget her, nicely done and I truly enjoyed your pen. A brilliant poet indeed, you made Mazatlan come alive for sure.
