Coastal waves graze
across the clean white sands
evening shades of aquamarine and
crystal clear waters entice,
calm and inviting…
until they’re not.
Dark skies get darker as the
wicked storms rock and
roll inland, volatile, and without warning.
Rogue devil, this wave
whips up a stew, turns the salty shore
into strange colors of
and blood red –
Organically, symbolic for this
night in June, yet evil is not to be
tolerated a moment longer.
Sky and sea become one in
Symphonic orchestration, until
a light begins to shine faint,
yet visible in the dark tropic skies.
Another hint of color joins the
prism palette, as if in celebration.
Once the cleansing tears of raindrops
begin to connect with the sliver of sunlight
the coast becomes bathed in light.
The colors of a rainbow become
magnified as they reflect off
sun and sea – a gift of nature –
Also, magnified is a message
and a reminder that life is unpredictable,
yet even with all of its tumultuous fury,
life is also filled with lovely hues of
color blended on an ever changing palette.
