Low pohutukawa branch in westering sun, photo by the wayward Weathercats

under the
pohutukawa
seated on a
low branch
feet comfortable
on earth we
closed our eyes
felt the wind
fanned in
low sun
rising in our
kiss a wind
holding to
the skin as
it held to
the waters
and dimpled
them the
dimples
still there
in your
cheeks
it was
and is
a riverside
love born
of tides
in the round
of moon the
cymbal clash
of sun on
a darkened
orchestra
of waves
writ all
of a riverside
an estuary-side
in love
