    As evening light fades
    the sound of many crickets
    serenade as one

    whilst fireflys glow
    in perfect celebration
    of a summer's night...

    hooting owls singing
    summer nights fall under starz
    quiet moments heard

    inside a sweet hush
    moon light dance off the shoreline
    soft breeze blowing in

    I love this idea for a haiku Akilah.

    Strolling beneath stars
    Twinkling brightly above us
    Illuminating

    Let's wish upon one
    While the chill of the night air
    strokes the ease of stride

    warm air, open space
    free flowing pace, slow down ease
    so much possible

    cascading within
    as summer swooping gentle
    into a deep hush

    Feet wet in the sand
    While dancing in the moonlight
    To the ocean's music

    Let's build a fire
    Just for us two ... sip chilled wine
    Toast to summertime

    As the camp fire glows
    We sit under a blanket
    Of love snuggling

    we sit and stare out
    there, the hot evening air
    a moment to share

    embraced by this heat
    the dark blue sky seems so cool
    grant me a bright star
