Sun Sand Sea


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

    I like it very much. I always like when there's a splinter that makes a happy picture somewhat sad... A beatiful poem! (Report) Reply

    The rhythmic flow of your poem is subtly and confidently dealt with ease in this highly gay poem that is spiritually engaging. Thanks, arya (Report) Reply

    Sigh.... delicious and just a slight bit of erotica thrown in (or is that my dirty mind? LOL!) . Your descriptives of a wonderful hot country make me yearn to return to dip my toes in its waters.... HG: -) xx (Report) Reply
