Merengue Moon

The bouncing beat

Of merengue music 

At the beach bar pulses

Across the Bahamian bay

On a mellow breeze, 

Calling to the palms 

As they sway their arms

To the night rhythm, 

Inviting them into a dance 

With the full blue beams 

That tiptoe across the dark water

Eager to step onto the white expanse

Lit by the bright disco ball overhead

    Sounds like a wonderful place for some rest and relaxation. With all the snow and cold weather here in North Dakota, this sounds like a piece of paradise. Nice use of imagery. Enjoyed it. Thank you for your kind comments. Karen
