It is the shadows embrace
That warms my heart
Curled beside the enormous picture window, I rested under the golden rays slanting in through the thick canopy of oak trees outside. Eyes closed beneath the suns warm touch, my mind drifted pleasantly, floating through the still waters of serenity without a ripple of concern. As I shifted slightly to stay within the expanse of sun, his shadowed arms gently drew me closer. With a serene smile I hugged him tightly, resting my head on the softly starched cotton shirt covering his chest. Beneath the ivory material, I could hear the subtle but steady rhythm of his halcyon heartbeat.
