Famosa Tortuga, Crema Bronceadora

Oil of turtle glides like warm silk
glistens on my skin
urges inland sunlight
to bring a bronzelike tint.

A nearby seashell fountain plays,
sets the scent of ocean free,
creates a sudden hunger
to place a footprint in the sand.

Decision made, keys in hand
I shut the door behind me
drive toward the closest shore,
realize I'm stirred by turtle envy.

I am taken to the seaside in my mind as I read this poem! Great drawing!
