Belize Dreams – Silk Caye Siesta

by jane arie baldwin

Under a palm tree I rested and listened

A conch shell pillow and soft sand bed

Palm fronds dancing in an easy breeze

Children laughing

Surf splashing

A lullaby calling me into a dream

Beyond the sand to the sea

Light blue mixes with turquoise and navy

Meets blue sky at the level of my eye

Ellsworth Kelly in blue hues

No cheeseburgers in this paradise

No hunger

No woman

No cry

Sink deeper into the sand

Close my eyes

Just die

Dreaming on Silk Caye

Silk Caye, Belize, C.A.
