A Tropical Portrait

                                                           canopy of blue
                                              adorned by white wispy clouds --
                                                          a heavenly day

                                                       palm tree sentinels
                                           watch ocean waves lap the shore --
                                                   white sand reveals shells

                                                        vibrant flora thrives
                                             shades of fuchsia, verdant green --
                                                          a paradise found



7/13/12 for Gail Doyle's "A Scenery of Your Choice,
                                       As an Artist" contest.
