Twilight Dance

couple dancing sunset beach

Spinning in a warm embrace,
Twilight shadowing your face—
This dance defies all odds.
Cold waves splash across my shoes;
Dark clouds gather in a bruise—
I’ve prayed to many gods.
Stars spell out a warning sign,
But this moment feels divine—
The moon just shrugs and nods.
