Blue black star lights
on a shimmering ocean
Spread, endlessly in
the heat of the day
Gentle waves sliding
quietly ashore
Sharp edges of
sapphire reflecting
our love

Blue black glints,
dazzling my vision
A dance of damsels
on the surface of a diamond
Glittering fragility
in the wings of an angel
Fluttering frantically
at the edge.
Sapphire blue black

Blue black passion
caught in the heat
A day's decision lying
in the hot sands
And images of a face,
youthful and free.
A thousand facets of
a life unfurled
A lover's play

Blue black infusion
of hot passion
And kisses in the ocean's
endless rhythms
Drums and drumbeats
and sandpipers
Playing a passionate tune
Of lovers, lives
And sapphire
blue black
