Between Midnight and Dawn

Overcome by the peace in the midnight hour
Moonlight fills the otherwise velvet black sky
Twinkles of newness invade our senses from afar
The night so beautiful it causes us both to sigh

On our tropical island watching the trees sway
Love was captured between midnight and dawn
Bodies entwined the feeling took our breath away
Forever our nights under the moonlight will live on

For: *Gail Doyle's first contest*
