Ode to Costa Rica

Sun, ever present,
life fills every aspect of the landscape,
completes every sentence in the
sweet vocabulary of nature.

Resplendent palms,
multitudes of trees that
nurture grand varieties of
greenery whether by design or
the circumstance of the sheer
power of the living.

Unrelenting paradise for
those who truly embrace nature,
vast laboratory for the
persistent diversity of the
bounty of planet earth.

Birds that bind all the
colors that sunlight can yield
within their feathery garments.

Birds are everywhere,
they fill the rhapsody of morning
with song,
tucanettes and scarlet macaws,
the elusive quetzal wearing
a kaleidoscope of colors
that puts the painter’s pallete to shame.

Surrounded by two oceans,
we dance in the warm surf
under tropical skies,
beneath the inebriating and
erotic call of the tropics,
propelled into each other’s arms
enkindling our gypsy hearts with the
alluring rhythms of the sea.

The persuasive call of howler monkeys
like wind that echoes through the trees
above  the relentless sound of
driving waves pummeling the shoreline.

Costa Rica,
land of visual and sensual delights that
tells such a vivid story
regarding this glorious earth and
its sublime potential.
