Within Night's Shadows

Within Night's Shadows

This poem was inspired by the photograph used on the cover.

The blacks of night created shadows
that hold us intertwined within
our souls... as we touch, explosions
of color wrap us beneath blankets.

Hidden, the moon's shadow peeks
in our window, framing you in
magic's light... exposing our
touch, our search and our love.

Moonbeams dance upon you as
I grab the camera of my eye.
I snap in memory this moment
that reveals my photograph.

A photograph to capture love.
Your beauty exposed within light
and dark...I kiss you and trace
the silver outline of my model.

As my fingers trace moonbeams,
I ignite light's last exposure.
Creating photographs of you that
are within all of life's colors.

Within dark, light, pale, or
vibrant hues, you are mine.
Within night's shadows, dusk,
or dawn, you are mine.

Let the moonbeam's dance!
Let the sunshine tango upon
your breast... within all of nights
hidden emotions, we dance.

As we dance in a portrait
of love... laying within
night's shadow, I kiss you.
I will love you forever.
