       I went to Jamaica once.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    The day I left the beach
    last hours waiting
    sipping slipping paradise
    trying to hang on
    twilight birdsong
    men selling conch shells
    from rocking boats
    during breakfast
    Finally, flying high
    above the setting sun
    fields of sugarcane
    blazing below
    I went to heaven
    without a camera
    now those days
    are memories
    skewered on paper umbrellas

      I like your memory of jamaica,
    and you almost make me wish I was there.
    I like your poem too.
    You have a way with words.

      I liked everything about this, but I want more. I still don't feel like I was there with you yet. Does that make any sense? It is like there is nothing wrong with this, but more would be better. I know you saw more than you are telling. Where are the smells? What else did you see? You showed me a boat rocking but no water. What color was the water? Was it clear, opaque? And a Jamaican sunset? Surely it must look different than my Michigan sunsets, no? Did you taste anything? Those cold salty lime and lemony drinks? The ones that sweat tears down the glass in the afternoon sun?
    Just wondering.

      You were really descriptive in this poem and it gave me a clear view of everything. Nice use of imagery. I really enjoyed reading it, I miss the beach now!
