White stallion gallops
a thunderstorm beach.
Sky drums roll
out beyond the pier- –
beyond cognizance.
Bareback- -warm
against my legs,
he carries me
effortlessly- –
flying free.
Hoofbeats splash
Poseidon’s kisses
over my skin.
Your smile, love- –
a photograph pasted
on a page in my mind- –
I find, keeps me grounded.
Sweetheart, you know
I would ride forever- –
I could, but your smile
anchored in my mind
keeps me earthbound.

Tide swell erases
words in sand- –
washing songs from shells- –
foam licks our legs,
Poseidon’s moonlight drenched kisses.
We swim with stars at our feet
diving in
to one another,
trying to save the last pearl
from ever being found
by the wrong hand.
Long days of summer gone
we package our love
in seaweed
and color it farewell.
