turtle bay

morning rainbows like colorful dragons
drinking from a dawn-lit sea;
I think of you.

evening sea breezes carrying gentle rains
to a soft green shore;
I think of you.

fragrant jasmine blossoms caressing
a darting hummingbird.
I think of you.

a gently curved gold-sand beach
framed by swaying palm trees;
I think of you.

the daytime sky so blue that it echoes
the oceans very depth;
I think of you.

a black night sky roof pierced by the brilliance
of a thousand tropical stars;
I think of you.

our fingers intertwined, our lips tenderly meeting
in the stillness of turtle bay enchantment;
I dream of you.
