Luminarias (Day 156)

 
Clinquant luminarias twist the heavy
heat,
sending strange spirals of scented 
smoke
climbing lazily toward the dancing
stars
reflected in the water’s tender 
veneer.
From time to time, winds work the
surface,
the way a gentle breath stirs and
lifts 
the silk-fine strands of hair along your
neck
when we whisper together in the living
darkness.
