Night Fishing

Night Fishing

(Getting to Know You)

I close my eyes and see
The night stark and clear above
Feel the heat of August
And something else but what?

Stars dance madly over us
Twinkling like my nerves
You flash one sly smile 
And throw my heart a curve

Black space surrounds us endlessly
Possibilities abound
Anything could be out there
Just waiting to be found

Can’t help but to imagine
And to wonder what awaits
Is it the tangle of intentions
Or all predestined fate?

But it’s all just too serene
Nary a burden on the mind
You lift your arm and pull me near
And my very heart does sigh
