    On Almond Beach
    he sleeps
    while the intimate
    climate of the
    Gold Coast cleanses
    his body

    The sun sets at his feet
    and offers up
    the secrets
    floating just on the
    other side of a
    full-figured daylit sky
    while the rich bounty of
    Barbados awaits the
    signal to fall freely
    upon his
    Yucca Pole Trunk
    each star filled night

    In all of his splendor
    he thrives
    in roots
    made of white sand
    and he drinks of
    clear waters drenched
    across a vast Bajan land
    With plush cool green
    feather-duster leaves

    With those branches
    he collects
    two handfuls
    of the winds' breeze
    and settles in for
    a still life
    in a living spa...

    There's an Almond Beach
    off the Gold Coast that
    surely must be pleased
    to host the inhabitants
    of such marvelous
    Palm Trees
    nothing else that
    I know of can create
    such a relaxing
    sight as this...
    the Double Coconut
    of Seychelles

    You're more than welcome to go on any voyage my poetry takes you on! And how 'bout that... a sista is getting better at pickin' out "objects" and writin' about them as if they were the best thing since sweetened chocolate!

    Much :heart:
