This poem was published in the Introduction of my novel, "The Tropics."

Moonlight glistens on the frosted jalousies
making them seem like bars on the windows,
but horizontal and scintillating,
very freeing,
as tradewinds waft into the room
and billow the curtains.
I breathe in response,
hear the rhythm of the surf,
and lay spread eagle, uncovered,
falling asleep knowing moonlight
will slow dance across my bed,
washing over my naked body,
with its rhythm as the moon shifts
in the sky
from one window to another
projecting a square of radiance
that distorts and elongates
as the reflection slips
around the room
which becomes lighter with the rising sun;
moonlight awash with sunlight merging,
when Iíll wake and rise and walk into the glowing
and stretch in a bath of light.†

Aloha, Mary. It was wonderful chatting with you and Ronald today. It was such a wonderful experience and I appreciate everything you both had to share. I just read this poem and found it breathtaking with all of its many many layers. Whether from a sensual interpretation or an awakening, or even as a passing poem, this poem reveals so much so wonderfully. Thanks and keep up the words. :-) Richard

Nicely done. One can visualize a wonderful night in the tropics.
Florida is not too bad either. However I have been to The Islands a few times and it is special. Where does one go to have this vision?

Hearing the surf, lying near the ocean, a dream of mine forever. You painted a lovely scene and a beautiful night into morning.

Hi- Mary- I've spent some time in Brazil and Fiji and other such places and you capture
the sensual feel and cool, cool luxury of that sweet slumber very well indeed. I enjoyed it. When you have time read my Long Gone Love and Old Souls. You'll like them. I'll be reading you. Jerry
