Fire

Fire & Tides

fire licked sky

cobalt night time

waves brushed by

kissed with a hiss

memory of us

here, barefoot

locked embrace

words understood

in their silence

we knew

as the fire knew

this moment

was born to die

replaced by tides

along shoreline

defiant

we stoked the fire

higher, higher

our love grew

gave birth to stars

in its amber flare

our eyes gazed

into the other

and saw eternity

fire or no fire
