A Modern Place

As the sun rises over the ocean
And breezes swirl the palms
My thoughts turn to when I was young
Not that long ago this island
Was a different kind of place
Now every inch is robed in condos
Gone is the quiet of solitude's grace
Gone is the simple gait
A new era has entered
Where life is a noisy honky tonk pace

    Ha ha, you must've entered a bar or something by the looks of this place, or what I have imagined especially by the words, "honky tonk pace" At least that is what I imagined my friend! I really enjoyed reading this awesome piece, such a delightful poem Sara! What a fun write, Great Work!!
