Warm hands seek out each other in
Maui's gloaming skies atop Haleakala.
Platinum clouds gather, slightly
shrouding dawn's shy arrival.
Forehead to forehead, soft breaths,
sharing butterfly kisses as lilac
skies morph into cerise hues
reflected on blushing cheeks.
Heartbeats increase, anticipating
dawn's brilliant appearance.
Her back to his chest, cradled in his arms,
his warm lips on her fragrant neck.
Excitement builds, a sliver of dawn's
tangerine eye makes a coy emergence
winking, as if she's aware romance
is blooming with her divine approach.
Slowly she gathers her satin robes of
scarlet and gold in an elegant display,
as enraptured eyes enjoy glorious hues,
as dawn dances in sparkling irises.
A couple wrapped in colors tenderly
share love's first kiss in paradise.
As dawn ascends, her light erases charcoal
shadows on emerald valleys and on
a cerulean sea mirroring the sky,
now blooming in symbiotic ivory clouds.
