The departing sun
kisses her lips
as the darkening sky falls in love
with the shimmering horizon
stretched across the sea.
A flock of white seagulls looking like
fallen clouds spread their
broad wings, seeking out silver
mullets in the water.
I search for her smile as the moon climbs
the roof of the clouds like a yellow cat
on the bark of a slender tree.
