Encircled by the sultry cobalt ocean kindness
I face the poise of unending pleasant gaiety
The black sand beach entices a fun rarity
Soles tread gingerly upon new friendliness.
Palms sway gently on tropical flowing breeze
Trusting hope lays a gathering distinct laziness
Summer time clouds shelter mountains haziness
Orange juice comes deliciously squeezed.
Vacation island satisfies the dream held tight
Strolling the paradise in bright filtered moon light
Final evening reveals the memory of cherished desire
Yet the gloom of home extinguishes my burning fire.
