Sun Sand Sea - Poem by ONElia AVElar

Honey from the sky,
sugar under feet,
warm turquoise tea.

I let my senses revel in
a territory of tranquility.
In modern temples
of sun, sand and sea,
where all believers,
all tourists-pilgrims
lie almost nude
instead of going
down on knees.

I joined the multitude
becoming follower
of antique Epicurus'
school in Greece.

    I dont like this poem. It doesnt make that much sense and the alluding could be prettier with its vagueness. (Report) Reply

    Sugar under feet. Perfect words to explain the seaside today. It seems no one can understand it or nature. (Report) Reply
