Sharks Are On The Prowl

lying on the beach
counting the stars while we tell each other secrets
lying on the beach
while sharks are on the prowl

countless opportunities to escape
but the magic of a paradise holding us back
sharks are on the prowl
while we make love in the water, making waves

moon peeps out
between night dark clouds
disturbs us counting the stars
moon is curious,will it tell our secrets?

enormous are the contrasts
hot lovemaking surrounded by danger
make no waves sweetie
while sharks are on the prowl

    Wow Arild, talking about living on the edge!! Romantic, erotic, and done with pure class as only you can do. Such reality and images that stretch the imagination. Glad you liked another chapter of me. Hope you are well across that big puddle that separates us poets. Michael

    :) Okay that is hot! Really enjoyed this write. I never make suggestions... except to really brilliant writes such as yours... it works just as it is, exactly as it is, but you may wish to consider in the second to last line... RIDE THE waves sweetie... it may add to the erotic elements and it makes you wonder... who is the shark? ;-) Thanks for all you bring to soup. You are such a warm person, always kind, always helpful. Cheers and hugs, Cyndi

    thanks for the input,Cyndi;) but the idea came after I saw a documentary about how too much "splashing" in the water could trigger a shark to attack..so that`s why I chose `make no waves`..:-) hugs back at ya`Cyndi! and thank you so much for your kind and uplifting words:)

I'm sure the only one seeing are the fishes... lucky you jaws is only a movie, and the moon only speaks to he or she that is listening. I'm watching the "Friday the 13 movies" with Jason.. lol..he's killing all them love makers..campers... LOL... I'm looking out for you and this magical silhouette ... he he he..xox~pd
