Tugboat Annie's

A Poem by Marie Harrison
"

A tropical poem

"

-    - Tugboat Annie’s - - 

Boats line the rickety piers

All around her cove by the mangroves

With twinkly white lights strung

Above with love

 

Rasta’s reggae fills the air

With care as her steel drums

Pulsing off-beat casts a

Powerful hex on her decks

 

Sweet rum runners

Flow freely

Knocking her thirsty

Patrons’ toes-up

With one dixie cup

 

You and me

Rocking to the beat

Under her full moon

In our bare feet

A relaxing place to be, sailing out on the open waters!

A steamy, sultry, fun kind of vision you've painted here. Very fine writing, indeed!

Beautiful Mangroves spreaded the low depth water, the boat is sailing the right direction without hi tide and waves, nice poem.........
