Our Hideaway

Late afternoon – at twilight’s edge we drift toward a secluded beach on gentle waves of blue and green. We leave the boat; then hand in hand, along the sandy shore we stroll as sky above gleams tangerine. We see the cottage up ahead. It seems as if sweet summer sighs because we feel its cooling breeze. Anticipation moves our feet. We find ourselves outside the door. A night of bliss we soon shall seize. We hold each other as we watch the final fading of sun’s gleam into the sea; the day is done. Night brings the moon and glitter stars. Into our hideaway we go, and joy prevails, for we are one. July 30, 2019 for Emile pinet's Tri-Con Poetry Contest

This romantic and lovely Andrea. Congratulations on your well-deserved win. You must've put this up late because I didn't see it and I have been looking to see if you had written one. You honor my form with this lovely beauty! : ) xxoo

Oh take me there - sure the guys can come but the imagery and mood touched my own longing to be there. Lately, I've felt Autumn waiting in the wings and I long for one more summer getaway! Lovely work. I think this contest has closed without a thing from me but I really am cool with that. You should place well. Love you ... CayCay
