Belmont Shore

It pulls my thoughts home
this passage of cars
in the street below
snatches of music
coursing through palm trees
breezy kites for the wind to carry

Making an evening’s peace
with the ocean, 
twilight enfolds
friends’ conversations,
warm waves 
on shores’ shoulders
garments of deep red
purples and blues’ hues,
the stucco balconies
keep an eye
on the show, fading
