Night whispers mysteries, beckoning
come savor the evening’s essence
damp earth, sweet jasmine, and white lilies
flourishing in the shadowy garden
virgin blooms against blue-black sky
as stalwart hedges stand guard through the nigh
Moonflowers glow under silvery moon
and lovers shed clothes to go for a swim.
In calming warm waters, they cast off inhibitions
while drowning in the essence of damp flesh
as it blends with the fragrance of blooming flowers
their senses fill with the heady scent of sex,
and they while away the luminous evening hours
making love under the willow’s bowers.
