A sonnet

Mirrored Calm

Mirrored calm, reflection stares to vastness,
Tree lined shores beckon a forgiving heart,
Peaceful waters hold silent wind’s last tress
The ripples roll gently as painted art,
Floating on edgy care, insects go sire.
The mesa looms over star lit shelves all
Faintly glowing behind the dying fire,
Embers now wink and wink again to call
The frosty breath of snoring lover huddled
Inside cozy warmth of blankets bare, hands
Reach a tested, rough shoulder, well muscled.
Rising slowly, air creeps in soundless bands.
A soul through rasping cloth of linens soft
Audacious fate gives togetherness tossed.
