Havana Skies

Havana Skies

A Poem by Neville Pettitt
"

some things are just meant to be seen..

"

Havana Skies

 

Hey kids

Check out this still Havana sky

Where magnificent

Delta winged frigate birds fly so very high  

 

Then be

Prepared to rest a while

Beside some long lost turquoise swimming pool

And marvel

 

As these

Sun bleached rainbow towels they dry

Tempting emerald hummingbirds

To sip from them

 

Hey kids

Just you listen to those eagles cry

The swallow and the swift must surely be

Both the dolphin and the porpoise of the skies

You have transported me to some wonderfully exotic location. There is some superb imagery here Neville and also a lesson for the kids. Pause and take notice of the natural environment and soak it all up. Love your final stanza. Yes the sky is another ocean :) A very welcome poem, on a dull, cold day. You brought me blue skies and heat. Now a gin and tonic would just make it ideal.

dear Neville... Inlove your dolphin and the porpoise of the skies. All our feathered friends descend from perches where true beauty lies. Kids from around the world can enjoy the beauty of the feathered birds who decorate our hearts with lessons of survival and determination. truly, Pat

Reminds me of the 5-star "Sandals" commercial on a visit to the Caribbean. I loved the imagery of the birds, dolphins, the sea and the Havana sky. :-)

Thank you C.Q.. I am delighted..
What a relaxing poem that colors the canvas with bright vivid shades of summer. With milling birds spilling over the horizon. Loved it.
