The Longest Shadow

We walked 
onto the Half 
Moon Bay bluff 
to watch the sun
skinny dip
into the Pacific Ocean.

We stood arm in arm 
in awe, 
in love, and
turned to look behind us. 

Our shadows cast 
long and deep 
into the dark orange tunnel 
of trees 
that stretched on and on and on
until we couldn’t stand it 

any longer, the sun
on our backs.

We stretched up
onto our tippy toes
and felt the end,
and laughed all the way

back to our motel room
where we made love, remembering
who we were, where we came from,
where we were going.
