A solar ring reflected on the water
As he approached
Through a canopy of pines.

“Don’t panic!” he demanded.
The moon’s perfect orbital
Shadow fell upon the placid lake.

And my heart quickened
Beneath my breastbone.
“Can you spare a double A?”

I nodded, silently, as I stood,
Staring at his deep blue eyes.
He smiled, a knowing smile.

“They’re in the jeep,” I said,
“Just a moment while I…”
Turn and catch my breath.

Thus began the glory of love
When light and dark became one
Under a cloudless sky.
