Robinson Island


I had an Ananas
Served by a Barefooted waiter
Around a Bonfire
When the Boats came in
Through the clear waters
The Cameras went Click Click
As the Crabs ran into the sea
We dried our towels on the Dwarf  palms
The Excitement made the Fishermen drink Safari Cane
And Goody joined the Giriama dance.
And the German swung in the green Hammock
There was Hot water in the  showers at midnight
Children of the Island don’t like to fish
She taught me the value of the Mangrove
As we  sunk the seeds in the Mud
The New age walls are something
And Omari loved Riding in the boat
Forgot all about the Rusted  shower heads
Sleeping under nets in the Sand
Alerted us to Sunrise
And  Seashells tattooed our faces
The Salty water and Smoke
Soaking in the Sun and building Sandcastles
With Sea weed from sparkling sea water
Telling Tales under a star studded sky
Terse smiles from in-laws who were shy
The Watermelon was super.

    Superb imagery! Your 's' alliterations towards the end are most effective. The whole mood of the piece is delightful... wonderful descriptions. Best wishes, Keith

    thank you Christopher I wrote this after visiting an Island by that name in Malindi, off the Kenyan coast.

    And Seashells tattooed our faces..loved this! You told a very enjoying story through poetry. I was captivated with how this flow and how you went from one line to the other without losing a beat. Very nice work.
