The Dunes of Ossabaw

We walked by them… The lovers on the beach… The night hid our presence and the waves silenced our passing. There was no missing the intensity of their caresses and the throes of their passions in the gentle falling of night. We walked softly to honor their magic. The lighthouse sparkled in your eyes and the quiet laughing in your smile echoed the warmth of younger days. On an island, long ago, the dunes of Ossabaw had whispered such spells and we, in our youth, had listened to the ocean’s love songs. The return to our camp passed in rich silence. Under the amber glow of candles the adventure returned and I fell in love.. again.

    You know what James, hmmm, try taking a pass it the verse in present tense. It's a lovely verse and present tense might make the reader feel like the couple must a hurry to get back to their own tent & love. Hugs!

    Enduring love has to be one of life's richest of blessings. How rare and precious it is and how dismal the prospects of finding it. Beautifully expressed in your poem James. Thanks for sharing. Laurie
