‘The Waltz”


The Waltz

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


The ocean and love create emotions and passion that stay with us forever.


The waltz

We were doing a waltz upon the Monterey beach.
The waves were the orchestra and
the wind was whispering a love song.

I tossed  you into a twirl and
I brought you back to me.

By the light of the moon.
Two lovers danced the movement of freedom
and celebrating being alive.

We come back to the ocean after each journey and
the ocean keeps our secrets.

The dancing waves are always waiting.

You are as beautiful as when I first saw you
and I held you like you were my last breath.

Two shadows upon a naked beach.
Doing the dance of hope and freedom.

The cold of winter is surrounding us and
we warm each other with laughter and dancing.

Two friends, lovers  and travelers who come to celebrate being alive.
Peace for a moment for two people who love the road.

We find each other at the end of our journeys.
Two wanderers in search of peace.

I love you my beautiful  Beatrice
