on beams worn smooth by summer bare feet; 
i inhale the warm sun-kissed scent of your skin.
eyes closed; smile pulled wide, the refreshing
call of the lake's fingers lapping at the dock pilings,
can't draw me away from this moment with you.

(Lake Gaston, NC)

Blissful indeed. Just lovely. How wonderful that the natural beauty around you can't tear you away from him.

Tight write, all the emotion compressed, all the atmosphere released. Very fine.

this is one of my favorite places to disappear, both life, and poetry.
