Summertime in Key West
Mangos ripe and green,
Red banana pods dangle
in gardens behind white picket fences.
Hot sun on tin roofs,
Bright red poinciana flower blossoms drift to the ground.
Dark clouds come in, summer lightening,
afternoon thunder showers clear the air.
Soft white sand, salty sea breeze, sail boats gliding by,
Warm aqua ocean water teaming with sea-life,
renews the body and the soul.
