Life on la Agua
I sit by the shore as cold pequeño
waves crash against my bare feet;
coaxing me into the shadows of the deep
blue sea. Patches of salty cream foam
roll in the distance before lazily
making their way to land; clashing
with the arena around me.
Rojos, naranjas y amarillos
bleed into deep shades of azules
y ciruelas; a small shimmer of hope
flickers in the distance before darkness
consumes it. La Luna glows brightly
while stars shoot in la noche;
trails of stardust follow behind
as they dart across the sky.
Crickets chirp in the tall dry grass
while luciérnagas dance to their music
as they create iridescent light shows
in the darkness of the night.
