Poem of Sharing

Following correspondence with a dear friend and frequent source of inspiration – Carla Milho, a lovely lady and talented writer hailing from Lisbon, Portugal – I wrote this poem…

Hearts in Hands of Time

A locket lost in the sands of time
On a beach, on a date, long ago
As lovers captured a setting sun
Holding hands, moving close, hearts aglow

In the years since passed
Now, a quiet life
With the fire kept warm, alive

Down memory lane
As husband and wife
Still in love, on a moonlight drive

In the twilight between dusk and dawn
Step by step, tracking prints, shifting sand
Reflections on gold, one summer night
Found again, on the beach, hand in hand
