RED SEA RECALLED

RED  SEA  RECALLED

Perim squints in sun without relief
Through its narrow windows
Towards the mirage
Of  Socotra’s pearled reef

Red and shallow sea floor
With coral islets shimmering
And rainbows of fish
Near its dusty rock shores  
 
Crossed by the Tropic*
Crossed by dhows
Crossed by  Moses
Crossroads geographic and historic

Its waters stream  warm
Through the gate of tears *
A tideless desert  sea 
Caught in a sand storm 


...............................................................................................

NOTES

Tropic of Cancer crosses the Red Sea’s  mid-section.
Bab el Mandeb   means Gate of Tears.
Perim and Socotra are islands in the region.
