Beneath the Stars

Enchanted by the beauty of the night,
the wayward breeze of summer’s eve disturbed
emotions of the past. The waxen light
of moon espied, as flames of old reverbed.

A fading love revived on golden sands;
goodbyes, the only words we planned to heed,
were left unsaid as fate rejoined our hands,
and soft lips kissed, in search to sate their need.

Insatiable desires refused to quell
as skin to skin we bathed in salty waves
and loved in time to gentle tidal swell
forever now entwined as passion’s slaves,

though just my dreams beneath the stars above
bore witness to our steamy summer love.

** Steamy Summer Love sonnet

    This has a great dreamy quality to it. What a wonderful sonnet, Sharon, and that third verse for me, was tremendous. yeah, I got lucky. She eased up on her requirements for the contest though I could have eventually come up with a sonnet. Just too lazy this week to try! Luv, Andrea

    Hi Sharon! I really do think you have it made for the contest! This is beautiful-- too bad it's just a dream though-- it just came so alive for me, especially that part about golden sands-- really beautiful :) -- Another winner I'm sure! haha for this contest I sure wish I were a guy, I think I'd do better at writing rhyme over a sonnet, but I'll try ;) -- nikko :)
