Roadside Sunset

As we drove

with the sun setting behind us

she noticed my gaze

glued to the horizon,

pulled over,

laid out a blanket,

and let the girl,

whose heart burned as passionately

as the rising stars’ light

over the vision of the sky melding colors

as day became night,

be at ease

in a moment that was perfect to her

-POE(MS)
