I follow you
Flashlight in hand
Still dimmer than our hearts
Lake of infinity
Lapping to the rhythm of
Sandy-toed, sips of merlot
You whisper of satellites
And how much you love me
Spicing my world
Peppering my skies

This poem is so spiritual and mysterious.
“You whisper of satellites / Geosynchronous orbits” I used to talk like that when I was a meteorologist. I just didn’t get to do so on a beach sipping merlot. A wondrous blend of words; alchemy.
I like the idea of peppering the sky with stars. Or perhaps it is salting it because of the color?
science on a beach with wine.. just perfect!
oh how love can spice up our lives….and most especially with wine beside the ocean! 🙂 Wishing on starry skies, loving that special person! LOVE this.
Oh I would love to watch stars with someone I love. That’s the perfect spice of life
Moonlight madness. What a nice interlude!
V. nice – I liked the line ‘Flashlight in hand / Still dimmer than our hearts’ it’s such a passionate image.
Oh, lovely. That peppered sky…
Just a perfect thought..
I like how after the declaration of love you end the poem with
“Peppering my skies
Don’t we all feel truly loved by the cosmos when under the starry firmament? It really is as if the billions of stars are kisses, promises.
Peppering the night with stars…..lovely, Mish.
So romantic, especially love this:
“You whisper of satellites
And how much you love me”.
