An Island Refuge

They climb to love's peak outlined in soft light,
as eager waves dance over muffled sighs -
their tropical song sways through balmy night.

An amorous kiss, each swoon at the sight
of a breathtaking moon sunken to spy.
They climb to love's peak outlined in soft light.

Bathed in silver tide, hearts pound without fright;
island breezes blow, bright stars blink on high -
their tropical song flows through balmy night.

A full moon flies free, descended from heights,
to impassion souls spread in wings of sky;
they climb to love's peak outlined in soft light.

Whispers in smooth sand, new music to write.
Down on bended knee; with joy, she'll reply.
Their tropical song flows through balmy night.

From romantic refuge, tomorrows invite
a bond eternal, no one can deny.
They climb to love's peak outlined in soft light;
their tropical song flows through balmy night.

For Shadow's Villanelle's and Terzanelle's Only Contest,
