A darkened exterior
pairs with an enlightened spirit,
lifted into plunging surf
and careening along love’s path.
Carelessness meets passion
in a breathy summer mix;
catapulted by history’s foundation,
jet-fueled by needs unknown.
Nothing is everything
when the connection runs this deep.
Challenged to constant truth,
the embers burn for always.
Separation is only physical,
as distance binds unearthly ties.
The sun and moon are in a smile,
burned into my soul.
