Chilly days. Golden leaves fall like ticker-tape,
A cavalcade of shimmering light, bounces.
You caught my heart in your baseball hand
On a bend in the river love waited for me.
As the long evening shadows tip-toe in, the sun,
Kisses the earth inviting the cool night, to rest,
On the ground. Then awaken with dew -filled eyes.
On a bend in the river love desired me.
You discovered what you like and what I love
Open mouthed. Leaves fondling themselves.
I discovered my future, and learned to fly
On a bend in the river love chased me.
Caught in a timeless air, amid a daytime sleep
Your hand resting on my leaf-skin, exploring
Exciting my senses…The time is done
On a bend in the river love caught me.
