The Night Sands

When a moment called, I answered

As night enveloped me

Held in the embrace of shadow

Caressed by a southern breeze


Breathlessly, a hush claimed the sand

Still warm the loving of sunshine

Shifting beneath my tread

Toes seeking hidden pathways


Ocean whispering sweet endearments

To the sharp volcanic stone

With patient murmurs

And playful fingers of froth


Echos ride a salty wind

Flavoring words in my mouth

As I sing songs on the juke box

Of my memory
