Back In Puerto Vallarta

20170908_171328048_iOS

We arrive at the hotel like royalty—
remembered, waved through
the sea breeze of halls and floors
to our room, a welcome platter
of fruit, chilled bottle of wine,
a card—that’s all it takes to
pull off our clothes, shower,
sit on the balcony white-robed,
watch the waves rolling toward us
until they roll all the way in and
we let go the body that struggles,
let anything and everything swim
out of us, follow a dark fin far
and away from the old shore,
the sea surging, filling my mouth
with its need to be tasted—salt lick,
tongue slick with the eloquence
of stars.

I finally decided to start posting some of my Mexico poems, seeing as how I’m one month into a 3 month holiday here – not at the hotel above but in a condo right next door.

  1. Thanks Lynne,

    I am transported, and warmed, and calmed,……….. A beautiful contrast to our typical Sea to Sky experience here up north on the (currently wet) coast!

    Just by the way, had a nice visit at YVR Fairmont with my friend Terry on Friday evening, she is now vacationing in Manzanillo for 10 days. Ha ha, you may just cross paths on the beach at some point!

    Much love, Kim. xx.
