Swell surges, as the water ferry slowly rises,
It is a beautiful day on Caribbean waters!
Sunlight sparkles as the ripples glisten,
silver glitter on the deep blue sea.
Wake unfolds as the mountains fade behind,
a streak of white in a field of blue.
The direction is certain, uncertainty lies ahead,
Waiting for an unpredicted future to unfold.
Settled gently on a tropical island paradise,
Life’s gifts come through forks along the way.
Receiving gratefully, that which was unplanned,
opens joy’s tranquility to hearts that are aligned.
