This has been floating around in my drafts since March... lol
I saw you standing there, waist deep in the panting breaks.
You were, for the moment, oblivious of me, entranced... staring at the horizon where ocean and air fused into a kaleidoscope of colour – dancing in our eyes. You lifted your gaze to watch that dark veil slowly slithering down from the east.
Your body glistened, palms caressing the fluid surface , barely touching the waves. Softly sweeping motions to accentuate the moon’s glow on your gently coiled muscles.
And in your wake, the water spilled carelessly onto the forsaken beach.
I watched you for what felt like hours, days... until the ocean consumed the shore and you moved with the tide, ascending to the pebbles, rocks, and up the cliffs – where you were still gazing... but now at the darkness.
Were you waiting?
I wondered what you were thinking, my love... locked in that gaze of the endless earth. Charmed by the winds and waters and skies.
One day, I may ask you, I may know. One day I might intrude on your solitude and stand next to you on that scenic platform. Bodies in orbit around the sweat of the seas... embraced by the sensual spume. A shared reverie.
Until that day when I shall meet you, I will gaze at you, from my shelter... always wondering...
‘Til then, my love
