in the whispers of palm trees




in the whispers of palm trees

my mind wanders aimlessly
like algae on the sea
beneath my rolled-up khakis
warm waves crash upon my feet
reminding me of…..sigh

a gentle caress
trembles my skin
underneath my white shirt
I turn to reach for her
my hands grasp an island breeze
paradise is lost
she is the treasure I never had

sand seeps from longing fists
I call her name
as her silent giggles echo
in the whispers of palm trees

  4. My roadtrip cost me a lot including my blog readings. When I see this I just have to read it because I’m surrounded by palm trees right now. I should have know that I’ll feel the usual twinge of… I don’t know how to explain it… lonely? No not really… more like a solitary walk in the sunset.

  5. This is beautiful on so many levels! I love the way you grasped at wind and then sand ran through your fists… perfect! She won’t stay hidden in the breeze forever.
