Summer Dance

the gracious movement of her being
brightens morning with light and laughter
heaven moves through her cloudless sky
a soft translucent wind stirs

her emerald eyes spin thoughts of love
a gentle warmth permeates my body
she is pure joy sifting across cool waters
a champagne sweep across the heady countryside

momentarily she holds her figure
then, with a glance, she trails before me
an evening gown burnt by a golden sun
as slowly her body brushes the earthen floor

I step back in gratitude
and allow her memory to satiate my soul
