Independence Day

We stood upon the shore
The sky afire with your love
Candles celebrating past
Bringing us into present
A day of independence
Of starting anew

Your voice rang out to me—
Your heart echoing the blast—
As your arm folded round me
And held me to you fast
In gentle contrast
Internal flames ignited
And the world evaporated
For a moment
Leaving us but two
Just me—
And you.

I wish I could get such expression into my novels. All I can say for myself is that my novels are probably much better than my updates and posts on my blog.
