***an Island - Poem by David DeSantis

On an island
i met you
in my dreams
one night

and the moonlight
before us
it danced through
your starlight

as the sun woke
around us
and palms swayed
through tree tops

A smile
i gave you
came crashing
with the waves

and im happy
for the first time
with the sunrise
before me

to see you
even a dream
the blue sky
she calls us

to have known you
one time
as we walk
a boardwalk

I hand you
bright beads
you wear them
your neckline

and we smile
together
drum beats
and congas

surrounded by
people
im lost in
your eyesight

and the beauty
of a face
i’ve seen like
no other

to see you
even a dream
the blue sky
before us

to have known you
one time
as we walk
this boardwalk

A fisher
finds his catch
children
feed seagulls

and you here
is all i need
on an island
in a dream

    This is something similar to a Copacobana scenario. I like the rhythm particularly. (Report) Reply

    For me the good poem is a dream island, when reading it i must feel that i am leaving the place where i am. That is why I like to read poetry and that is why i like this piece very much - it makes me travel far away. Your easy flow of words made my travel a pleasure. mmmm, very harmonious piece...
    Peace,
