Off-Season Romance

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

Now, in our winter years
past summerโ€™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.
