A love built on trust

A love built on trust

Our love flutters on calypso breezes,
cruising on the tropic of Capricorn
All of our anxieties it eases,
as mango sun wakes us this August morn

Passionate dew glistens on sun kissed skin 
as we gaze at skies of peaches and cream
your essence incites desires within
We're enamored in this tropical dream

This is no cruise ship infatuation
We confess and reveal history's scars
tethered together in hearts migration
Promising love, under the moon and stars

Shooting stars ricochet through cosmic dust
Heavenly signs that our love's built on trust

Wow I think that's a first for me too! Glad you like my simple sonnet, I don't usually do them, too difficult, but glad this one came out ok!

Really nice, I like this a lot it felt like I was on a cruise as I read this. And that last line...that was great. Best wishes in the contest

Thanks Chris, I;m not so comfortable writing sonnets, I really avoid them cause they're so difficult, songs are so easy in comparison.
