A golden purple couple take part in the Sacrament of Love.
The radiant Phoenix Sunset showers them with evening colors.
The beak of the Phoenix curves right above the setting orb,
the wings and tail feathers radiate to the edge of evening.
The couple is in bliss,
their faces forming a Yin Yang of complimentary opposites.
The curves of the muscles on the man’s shoulders
and back lead you to the curves of the bay.
Life is perfect if only for a moment.
The day sacrifices itself like a Phoenix
 so the next day can be born.
The couple sacrifices their separateness 
so their union can be formed.
