Across the Ocean

Hot sand in summer
Moon shines across the ocean
Just like your kisses

A peaceful evening
Gently caressing my arms
The shore swarms with love

Endless Admiration

kissing golden sands         
in endless admiration
accursed by the moon

a sweet surrender
caught in stoic web of time
joy reigns eternal

waves hug sand
sweetly serenades 
‘Would you be my valentine?’
