In the preceding minutes,
Before the Sun falls –
Behind ‘Cave Hill’
And darkness pours,
Over the mouth –
Of the sandbanks,
I stop.
In the uncertain moment,
Between day and night.
And underneath this,
Tangerine sky –
Littered with flecks of blue,
I feel your presence,
Seconds before,
Your arm links mine,
And we move on,
Along the shore,
Star-crossed lovers,
Strangers in the night.
