Sketches from Fiji

Shards of sky grasped by shivering Palms

First star pierces blue-grey twilight

Thin trunks sway with elastic rhythm


A howling crescendo

Cuts through velvet black

Tent shells rattle and resound


Come morning

Trade winds roll on the backs of breakers

Erratic gusts fling up sheets of spray


Countless beads of liquid reflect

A fleeting flash, a heartbeat

A rainbow shattering into the sea
