ALL GREEN, STANDING OUT ALONE, THE TRANQUILITY,

SURROUNDED, BY OCEAN, A SPECK, AMID SEA.

WAVES, SLOW, LAPPING SOUNDS, WHITE BEACH,

SAND, SHELTERED COVE, STORMS, CAN'T REACH.

 

FRUIT, COCONUTS, MANY PALMS, MAJESTIC, SWAYING,

BANANAS, LARGE BUNCHES, IN GREEN, YELLOW STRAYING.

A SOUND, QUIET ROAR, FARTHER IN, DEEP FOILAGE,

A MOUNT, CASCADING WATERFALL, OFF LEDGE.

 

COMPETITION, MUSICAL CHORUS, TWITTERING, MANY BIRDS,

BRILLIANT COLORS, FLASHES, SINGING, WITHOUT WORDS.

NO HANDS, UNDEFILED, AN ISLAND, NATURAL STATE,

MANS' FOOT, UNTRODDEN, PURE, AS GOD CREATE.
