The First Walk - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Transcending to a universe empyrean and divine
As the hold of her palm clasps tightly on to mine
On a serendipitous coastline on a lonely atoll
Gliding on golden sands as the heavens extol
As the skyline imparts glistening boulevards of light
The enigmatic fireworks of a starry starry night
She wears an eternal smile on her lips caressing the orgasmic mistral
As the ripple of the ocean parts with a serenading chorale
A glimpse of her eyes, precious, seeping of affection
The symmetry of her visage, weeping of perfection
The gentle drift of her tresses embellished with a sprinkle of star dust
Her blissful skin, coated with her molten ivory crust
She is a goddess that fell from the halls of Valhalla
A flower coated in heron feathers, a breathtaking calla
As my palms tango to her slender fingertips
Her sundress levitates to the heavens from the sway of her hips
As Neptune's detains his wrath to bless two wading souls
Gentle undulations of the ocean caress their naked soles
Then she freezes like a water arum on a freshwater lake
Holds her gaze at me as my chambers quake
‘Kiss me my love', her sensuous lips dictate
As two lovers surrender to the jostle of fate
