Do you remember the night

i danced

beneath the moon’s nervous gaze

as you softly whistled

your next psalm,

composing as you went?


I moved in the shadow

of your eyes

impatiently waiting my turn,

all the while feeling

the hum of you

between my shoulder blades.


The stars reached down,

touched the pathway between us

as the dance of the Goddess

met the praise of God

and a new song was born.

      This is beautiful. Voted up and across. Your words are so touching. BTW, my Twitter was hacked - that was not me sending weird messages. In any case, beautiful writing.
