Snapshots of Willemstad


Warm breezes made of joy
Brotherhood of childhood
Parenting that doesn’t stifle

Dark men working hard under a harsh sun
Mankind bare and unresolved
Happiness of celebration for its own sake

Lizards and parrots
Orioles float above it all
Cactus overlook the ocean

Water soothes
Clumsiness in water
Desire to soar

Time is tangible as the waves come and the clouds roll
I close my eyes and try to capture being here
