In the Night

In the Night

we walk

up the quiet canyon

in the soft focus

the magic light

do my eyes play tricks ?

do you glow softly

in this dark light

lit only by the stars

you've brought an apple

for me to savor


coming to mind

a teasing thought

of an apple flavored kiss

your hand on my arm

a gentle touch

is intoxicating enough

to last this way

on this dark delightful night
