On Sundays we walk to the Cove
down a sandy trail
covered with wildflowers
all the way to the ocean —
We sit on the bench at the edge of the cliff
and watch the sinking sun
fill the air with velvet orange glow
as it quietly reflects in the still water
basking in the beauty of her own light.
And then my heart quivers with yearning
with deep longing sighs —
wishing this moment would last forever.
