Ever After

Two lovers

drift in a green canoe

to a little island just beyond

the cascading firelight of sunset.

The music of the water provides food,

an explosion of flavors and color, water on rocks,

splashing on trees, and everywhere there are rainbows.

Floating above it all is the sound of their laughter, sweet

and whispers of ever-after promises.
