Amalfi Sunset

Beyond the shore, the sun descends
and paints the sky in fuchsia blends
with passion fruit and tangerine
and clouds a-blush with peachy sheen

magenta ribbons flirt with blue
as day departs in royal adieu
a spectral thrall, a final boast
to brush the warm Amalfi Coast

the spritely sea consumes the light
as waters burn for coming night
and sand glows rose in lovers’ heat
there on the beach, we take our seat

I wrap her with a tender arm
she nuzzles close in eager charm
I smell her hair with deep inhale
and breathe the scent of holy grail

around us, buildings climb the hills
with coloured walls and shuttered grills
ravello trees complete the scene
and frame the town in racing green

as night ascends we start to kiss
her playful tongue a silken bliss
lips rumba dance to soothing tune
as sun gives way to silver moon

with shadows long, I hold her face
and down her arm my fingers trace
she shivers gently, eyes alive
our hearts a-beat in overdrive

the time is now, the time is right
I fix her with a longing sight
with timid voice, I speak my love
and she smiles as bright as stars above
