Breathlessly

Guitar strings are plucked

Fairies dancing on my palm light the way

It's a new moon garden party

Midnight gardenias hanging in clusters from the gazebo

Intoxicate the air w/ their heaviness

White and red Chinese lanterns hang motionless

The guests walk barefoot in the warm damp grass

Laughter and the musical clink of crystal

Bubbles up and spills into the darkness

Moonlight shines down from a blue-black sky

That blazes w/ diamonds

The marble fountain bounces the light back to my body

Covering me w/ white ripples that move

Languidly across my body

And I shimmer like a vision

Soft breeze licks the sweat from my spine

The guests open themselves like lotus buds

As the night bestows gentle kisses
