Hot summer sand

Tiny pinpricks of fire dance against my bare back

I vaguely realize I’ve slipped off the blanket

But it’s all right    my arms are not entangled

my hands free to run through his hair

Silken strands flowing between my fingers

I inhale his special scent of sea    salt    and sweat

Water lapping at my toes

At my bikini laying unnoticed on the shore

Waves breaking over our bodies

Icy cold rushing in to meet sweltering heat

as the moon spills her sultry glow

to make it seem we are swimming in honey

I feel the tide flow in and back out again

Surging over and over in that ageless rhythm

we think is ours alone

Our expression of love

is as natural and elemental as the tides

As the moon    the stars    and the look in his eyes

Home is a thousand miles away

in the land of cornfields and clay

Home is a thousand light years away

in the time before I threw my inhibitions away

during a hot summer night

And was loved

on the gulf shore in the moonlight
