Good for you. That one's pretty heavy, but I dig it.

I've written love poems for my wife specifically and several that were inspired by her. This is one is pretty much both:

A Summer Valentine

I see you, top untied,
and lying luscious
on a cartoon towel;
sweat and sunscreen, glistening,
rising silver beads on sun-browned skin.

You lift your shades
and smile, arching, sphinx-like
from a chaise, while glances
skip across the rippling surface
like smooth stones.

I curl my toes around the edge,
and contemplate
the shimmering web
of light below,
as children shout and whistles blow—

Marco
Polo
Marco
Polo...

Let’s slip into the silent blue
and spiral, intertwined,
like dolphins, dancing
somersaulting,
in some suburban sea.

Dive in with me, my poolside queen,
my chlorine dream—

Marco
Polo
Marco
Polo...

and never swim away.
