A Moment's Stillness

Just before the sun reached the horizon
a momentary stillness came to be
so still the water mirrored heights
of clouds and sky and trees
and it seems as if the birds all took a breathe
between their normal evening chatter
so that stillness might at last
now reign complete

Two lovers sit upon the shore
the only sound a quiet breath or two
for words can not describe
the state of their contentment now
as dusk draws down in silent sound
awakening the dream . . .
