Heart Sounds

She reclines against her mate,
flaming red spreading across his breast
like a shot to the heart, fatal.
Reassurance beats beneath her ear.

Flickers of red and gold dance,
scattered from the oak above
to blanket the world with color.
Fall air, apple-crisp, swirls all around.

Eyes, ice blue, mirror her own,
crystal and clear, sharp as a knife,
blinking sleepily against the glare.
A miracle, her son cuddles at her side.

She smiles, content. Amazed.
