Yellow ribbons furl
on oaks that line our driveway

Premium Member Autumn Moon
melon moon rising
akin to the rising sun— 
In contrast to lapis sky
enchanting lovers
strolling hand in hand on shore.
Moonlight coruscates on sea.

So slowly dancing
in Time's chilling solitude
bewildering the shadows
in Love's diary-
desolately She stares as
Hope's unwavering beacon

like my fingers' tip-toeing,

In a dream-like trance

We tread softly along paths

Lit up by flickering lights

We are holding hands

As we stop and read our names

Inscribed on the marble slab

Fired by a goddess’s longbow
Igniting a great passion
She says we should meet
At the hills above her feet
Where billowing clouds reside
