I Used To Think…

There is nothing,

At least so I thought,

More perfect
And satisfying
Than sitting
On my front step,
With my bourbon,
And my tablet…

To write,
And watch
The sun set.



Unconditionally appreciative
Of the ever-changing
Panoply of colors,
Gifted to my eyes…

Held in the completeness,
Enrobed in the grace
Of another exquisite dusk.

I used to think
That these precious moments
Captured the essence
Of what I believed
To be utopian,
And simply incomparable.

I used to think
All of that


Until my eyes were filled
With your beauty,

And my body was wrapped
In your elegance.
