Twilight is a Tempting Lover

Sunset on Charleston HarborTwilight is a tempting lover,
sharing slight secrets in the evening hour.
Hints of pale moonlight, and sparkles of promised stars
show meekly out from her dark robes.
Calming contrast to her twin the dawn,
all action and anticipation and allure –
new beginnings,
and unknown worlds.
Twilight brings the calm of the familiar,
the curve that fits the palm,
and the scent of sacred sweat.
The promise is a familiar one,
reassuring and warm.
We wrap ourselves up in those robes,
And lie down with her once more.
