Not the first time




he adores
the candle light playing on her sun-kissed skin


eyes closed, she smells of pink corals, and
orange sunset by the beach


for the first time, he is
shy and intimidated by their intimacy,


whispering softly, she says to her new lover,
do not be shy
we have been making love for days


he reaches
to touch her fullness, moonflower white  
 
fragile as a pearl,  in his firm arms
she is sensuality,  bold and heady


on his lips,
rapture dance of the sea and the sun


he knows 


as he writes and sings their music 
as he draws and paints their dance
