    traffic kinda hectic tonight
    sun's setting over the buildings
    the city lights start to arrive
    think i'll open the sunroof
    so i can catch the evening breeze;

    there's a scent in the air tonight
    it only shows in the fall after
    the heat of summer has subsided
    i'm pulling up to my drive
    think i'll sit here a while

    loosen my tie, recline my seat
    slip in Najee or maybe Miles
    say, "welcome" to the moon as
    it peers through the rustic sky
    this is a slow jazz moment.

    enter a dimly lit living room,
    leather couch in the center
    Coltrane playing in the speakers
    as i light an incense or two
    think i'll rest a while.

    slip off the coat,
    pour a glass of wine
    set the pillows so i can see
    the stars as they arrive quietly
    think i'll relax for a bit.

    point between relaxation and slumber
    the door opens slowly, so i adjust
    the pillows under my left arm,
    pour another glass with my right;
    think I’ll make dinner tonight;

    i lift one red rose to her as she
    rest her head on my shoulder
    i gently brush the petals across her
    brow as i massage the stress away
    "Long day at work?"

    waiting for that one moment
    when her head becomes heavy;
    relaxation has taken over, so
    i gently kiss her on her brow
    and we both fall off to sleep.

    Welcome home my love...

    Incredibly...

    ...serene, soothing, and romantic. Very thorough, D. Only you can infuse sensuality and subtly, the way you do. *Simply amazed*... :D
