Night Love - Poem by Bashiru Charles Bakin

half the moon is lit tonight,
but love lights, like its noon
through miles of dusty, dry wind
to a fertile land of love, where
seeds of love are sown, tendered, reaped
sights of lovebirds feed the eyes
memories of love that once fed the heart and soul
deep within, scars of the past still exist
yet inflaming fires for present and future love persist
sea waves move in rhythm,
arousing waves of emotions
cold wind breezes out the sea
indifferent lovers lie ashore
clutching tightly, skin against skin
lips interlock, zips to unlock after
guitarist plucks his strings, reciting love poetry
hearts beat in unison, minds in sync
forever lives the night, I hope
and forever lives love
