Rain

Rain, Sitting here inside, Waiting for the skies to clear, Hoping our vacation isn’t smeared, And yet I see only Rain, Pouring down in sheets upon this sleepy calm lagoon, It’s time has come to drench this lovely cove with cleansing droplets; Rain, I’ll wait it out, Serenely know this pause, Precisely why I came, […]

Rhapsody in Blue

I never tire of a clear morning when, while seeking a once-in-a-lifetime sunrise, I find, instead, a stunning, sparkling moon. This morning was particularly spectacular, as I could clearly delineate the crevices and crannies of the rocky moon surface. I didn’t see the man in the moon on this morning, but I know he was […]

Elevated

Rain is coming! (heavens are ablaze), Sailors warning! (still, I’ve fixed my gaze), Irma’s spinning! (warnings and delays), I will face her! (If she comes my way), Morning’s dawning! (storm clouds soon will raise).   WordPress: Elevate

Blurred Lines

Structure straight and perfectly aligning, A thousand stamens reaching for the sun, Each radiation delicate reminding We’re more than just ourselves, we are as one. From far perspective, branches tipped with pompons, Beckon to us: come survey our blooms, ‘Til closer in we scan the broad-leafed palm fronds, To spy their tender details, through my […]

Of Pearls and Scarlet Plumes

Before the golden fire-star breaks through, I stroll in search of glories yet unseen, Then I espy wee orbs of tenuous dew, Formed atop the tips of buds agleam. It may be that crimson color scheme distracts, and causes one to pass on by, Ignoring precious pearls, before sunbeams cast their rays and beckon dragonflies. […]

“LOVE” is in the air…

Out of the blue, emerging message strewn, Where wishes made on stars do oft come true, Across the azure sky, each letter drawn, I could not turn away from what I knew. First “L”, then “O”, (the thermals softly blew), The bus on which I rode went faster, still as if in trance, I stared […]

After an exhaustively satisfying jaunt to Disney Springs, we return to our Polynesian Paradise, with visions of plunging into a refreshing Oasis Pool. This photo captures many emotions for me, transporting me back to the warmth of that day; tasty lunch on the deck of the Boathouse, our traditional “Downtown” shopping and snacking adventures, and […]

Happy Trails

Excitement builds, as darkness settles in, Once sweltering sun dips low as day is done, From o’er the dark the opening strains begin, Repeated ritual calling us again. The sprawling barge lights with their sweet refrains, Sail slowly ‘cross the languorous lagoon, And we, like Pavlov’s, dogs are drawn again toward our beachfront stage to […]

Rare

Rare: Splurging on a special dinner at “Victoria and Albert”. Rarer: Impeccably skillful presentation of our “Colgin 2003“, transported all the way from our NJ wine rack, where it had rested peacefully for over a decade (well worth the corkage fee)! Rarer Still: Table-side coffee service – “Cona” process, brewed slowly, gently, and aromatically, as […]

Infinity

It’s all in one’s perspective, stirred or calm, No absolute to clear attempt define, Are we the epicenter of our realm, Or mere iotas in the breadth of time? In awe of spacious skies and hues sublime, Yet conscious that we’re specks of vast unknown, The midst of nowhere or mere changing clime, The macro […]

Objects d’Art

At last to view the changes to our “House” Amid the tiki torches, falls and leis, Where flourished once a rain-like forest doused, Would we even recognize the place? Attentions drawn instead towards the bay, As floor space opened wide before our eyes, The central lava waterfall erased, And in its place bright, sparkling, marbled […]
