Gratitude.. Latitude… Attitude

Tarika’s Place, A Tranquil Space


Let the waves of the wind
Carry you far away
Let the traffic carry you
To live another day

Eyes tightly shut
Keeping out the salty breeze
A grass skirt cut down to your knees
Coconut lotion and mango mist
Sand dropping quickly from your tightened fist

Sun scalding you
Water cooling you
Air over you
Cactus prickling
Tongue parched from a summer kiss
On a day such as this.
