Off-Season Romance

We waited
consumed with work
climbing the ladder
no time for escapades.

Now, in our winter years
past summer’s torrid heat
we meet on cool chilly nights
sailing into our dreams.

Your gentleness touches me
beneath a black sky lit by stars
until we blossom
in this off-season romance.
