Saxophones Blow Beauty

By

Sign in to view read count
An alien holiday
Brought back memories
Thousands of days old
Yet the beauty still unfolds
Wishing it could be told
As flesh on flesh that glows
With the energy of our kiss
As stars explode.

While music flows
Thru brain and blood stream
Expressing passion's theme
That once merged as one
Forever will be sung
In the hollows of the brain
Playing love's refrain.

Displaying joy again
As saxophones blow beauty
Nothing can take away.
