Enjoying Emerald Isle

Enjoying Emerald Isle

Catherine A. Coundjeris

Days like poetry
Stretch out forever
In a shimmering light
On summer beaches.
The roar of the serf
Lulling me to sleep.
Shrimp for dinner on
Every long summer day.
Tortoise and dolphin pass by.
Terns and ghost crabs
Caught on film
Pelicans making their daily journey
From one side of the beach to the other.
Contentment like the warm waves of air
All around with sky and water.
Time is liquid here
And the heat a second skin.
We wear next to nothing
Morning, noon, and night,
Swimming with the rays
Both sunshine and fish.
An occasional shark
Six foot and gray,
But mostly all together in one house
Enjoying Emerald Isle.
