Jewels

Jewels

Sun glistening on the water
Dazzling, dancing, diamonds
Sparkling in the early evening light
Jewels courtesy of nature’s beauty
Enchanting, exquisite, ethereal
Gifted as day turns into night
 
Clouds transforming to Indigo blue
As daylight is washed from the sky
Transforming, stunning in simplicity
A slice of moon illuminating the way 
Stars signaling the end of the day
Guilty only in their complicity

Moonlight

In a moon punctured velvety sky
The stars shone like bright lights
Glinting through pinholes reminiscent of
A thousand and one Arabian nights

A backdrop dramatic in its splendor
Showcasing the beauty of nature’s jewels
She reclined on a blanket of leaves
Her eyes drawing him into her limpid pools

The young and petulant girl had matured
She was now beautiful and seductive
Contrarily he remained socially awkward
Heuristic in his approach and still selective

Her infinite beauty was breathtaking
He felt rooted in the earth
A feeling of inadequacy consumed him
As he suffered in his dearth

She enthralled him on the forest floor
Devouring his manhood as she wished
Helpless in his efforts to dissuade her
Laying still until completely ravished

They lay holding each other tight
As if the other might disappear
Clinging to the sweet memory of love
Staring up at the celestial sphere

She was everything he had dreamed of
Although his superstition had given him fear
She elegantly propped herself on one elbow
And said, “Did you bring any beer?”
