The girl with blue Aruba eyes

~ She stood amidst the tropic breeze the girl with blue Aruba eyes Between the fruiting mango trees neath pastel sunset shimmered skies Meandering this summer’s eve we stroll the shoreline hand in hand Where lemongrass and grottos weave and footprints wander in the sand Alone this twilight paradise as moonbeams glow on suntanned skin Melodic turquoise waves entice a seaside romance to begin When here on dampened shore we kiss my heart it beats in whispered sighs Her beauty is my island bliss the girl with blue Aruba eyes ~
Since it is winter, I thought I’d take a poetic trip to the tropics Care to join me

Yes, Chris, a taste of the tropics is needed now, especially in colder climates. Your description of the girl's "Aruba" eyes is brilliant. I'm thinking they're the same color as the ocean in the Caribbean. Always a delight to read your work. Hugs, Carolyn

wow...lucky girl she is...but hey we can still join you on the adventure through your words...i'd pack my bags but it seems not much is needed for the tropics... what a gorgeous poem to end the evening and kick start the weekend.. it's going to be in the 60's here so it will feel tropical here at least, add your words and it will be just as steamy... Love this Chris... sigh.... hugs

You're right, not much is needed at all as long as you have someone you care about joining you on the trip. I am happy you decided to tag a long my friend. Can I get you a Pina Colalda or something? :) Thank you so very much Sandy.

Sure! Let's getaway from the cold...lovely title...blue Aruba sounds so cool. Well, if she doesn't make it you can always join the gal with brown Banaban eyes in a different part of the tropics...she loves mangoes too! Goodnight and warm dreams :))
