Island Aloha

Tall and lovely palms are swaying island fair
within the typical gentle trade wind's flow
as elegant Egrets glide on salty air—
then softly land where verdant short grasses grow.
At sunset whales are breaching, a sight so rare.
Divine Humpbacks swim with little calves in tow.
Cast away cold winter's weather to the breeze.
Take homeward bound treasures of warm memories.

Lovely and especially image laden to transport me easily since I was blessed to see much of this myself. It is a lilting walk thru beauty with your pen as guide! So sorry I didn't catch POTD when it was this (truth - I rarely look). Beautiful poem, Connie. Love ... CayCay
