    there is one moment
    when the eyelids
    of day flicker
    like a gentle
    breeze upon your lashes

    there is just one moment
    of all the hours
    and minutes in each
    God given day
    when the shadows
    of evening
    climb over the
    eastern hills
    and half of the sky
    is an amazing
    burnished
    array of twilight
    melding into
    star bursts

    the blanket
    of night is upon
    us,
    my love

    touch/feel me
    darkly beneath
    you &
    our shimmering
    covers

    all through this
    magnificent
    night

    I see it so clearly. The fountain in you just keeps running over for poor souls like me to wade in your streams and hopefully, be overtaken by the coming flood. Your contentment is felt.

    "All through this magnificent night"

    This one can keep a Brotha up ... all through the night. And I'm hearing faint sounds of ... music. Speak on it, Sis!
