Singing in the wild willy wind
slipping 20 knots in 30 seconds.
Anchor chain strains &
the land twirls an abrupt circle
A family of turtles at ease
in the cloudy depths
Mr and Mrs Pelican fly in
low over sunset water.
Down in the reef, moray eel hides
stingray slides, his black coat buttoned
the tourists trawl in catamarans
and we dream of loving.
