From the Santa Luzia Viewpoint (poem)

(inspired by my travels to Lisbon, Portugal- Feb 2016)

From the Santa Luzia Viewpoint

Like colorful poppies,
the rooftops
look to the sapphire sky
as the horizon flees
from the windy shoreline—

An escape to the next somewhere
in this Iberian dream,
away from the unforgiving winter.

How it feels! To have
warm sun against
white stucco walls
and pale skin,
made brown like sand
between hands and toes
as the sea gently strokes
them with its waves, soft like hair.
