Untitled Poem

boat sunset

Enchanting blue waves
frolic and play
chasing those they cannot outrun
before they collapse back onto themselves
merging with the surface,
tiny white caps
with their spittle of salty froth
spraying jumping
then vanish as they mix
with the undulating surface.

Caribbean secrets swirling, swimming, sucking, sexing beneath
as we glide south
the horizon beckoning
topaz and navy
unmoving
endless
timeless
as it remains unchanged since before man
and will long after
hopefully not too spoiled by humans,
unconquered.

Still Lifes by the Sea

These still life scenes were created by the beauty of the warm Puerto Rican ocean currents, the salt, the sun, the moon, the animals and plants that inhabit the coastal waters, tiny sand grains and unwieldy shells, sadly forgotten garbage.

These lovely displays were tossed at my feet, waiting to be captured on my camera. A few shots before a future tide re-arranges, mixes, removes, adds dimensions and mystery.

There were layers of opposition: colors and bleached corals, barnacles, barbs, smooth, crunchy, twisted, shiny, lacy, spotted, striped, hiding, clamoring for attention.   I so enjoyed getting lost in their beauty.   CIMGP0065
