In Puerto Rico

Poem By Elaine Oxamendi Vicet

Soft waters lapping the shores
souls sitting
minds moulded
hearts together

Quietly speaks the one voice
Quietly speaks, as hearts respond.

Birds fly
A swimmer in the distance
Activity everywhere
Yet a still quiet moment is shared.

Little talk
spontaneous little nothing laughs
Arms circle
Comfort, warmth, abundance of care.

Dusk falls
the afternoon now spent
Skies grow grey
the waves edge closer
Less activity everywhere.

Hearts still pound.
Arms still circle.
Comfort, warmth, abundance of care.

Gentle pounding
beats the tempo of love.

Rise, its time to go.
Night now falls
the evening now spent.

Souls move
minds moulded
hearts together
care and love is there.
Arms circle
heads gently touch
hands hold
as feet move.
Love and care is there!

The Dance Of Lights

I watched the circles move from a mysterious source
on yellow painted walls.
I turned to see what could cause this dance of lights and
noticed it was the sunlight peeping through the leaves of the orange tree that near towered over my window.
