2011 photo - "crossing the waters to Chacachacare Island"

akin to new sites...
a novel eagerly read
draws us to this quest

vastness of the azure sky
a pirogue skims the waters

in the far distance
the much talked about lighthouse...
sea spray undaunting

-- gillena cox



Revisit
Chacachacare Saturday
that hot day
steeping



i am blog hopping today at
Poetry Jam the prompt is "Sea"

One sees the vastness of the azure sky strongly, I think, especially when considering it above the vast sea. And a cool touch -- to mention the lighthouse in the distance!

I think people have a need to "see far" horizons, thus our contentment with sky and sea! I feel sorry for those who never get a frequent dose of the view of which you have written.

Wonderful that you pursued a place after reading about it in a novel. (And the name of the island is nearly musical--and such a mouthful.) Thanks for linking this.
