Stanzas of Love

I write of celestial moons and flying carpet rides,
Of seasonal hues and rising tides.

I write when golden light fills the skies,
And emerald hills enchant my eyes.

When the aroma of thulian roses scents the air
And wind blows the willows like Pele’s hair.

I write of all things that remind me of you,
How I’m sheltered by your shadow in all I do.

When I hear the call of a turtle dove,
I smile at the mellifluous voice of the man I love.

As a glowing garnet sun sets on a calm sparkling sea
Your love songs will echo eternally.

Our love will remain pristine and pure
As our souls combine and forever endure.

Decodeing secret message:
This message is to my mate when we met on one of my flights, hence the
flying carpet rides. The tides are because we live on an island in the Pacific.
