Blue Heaven, Key West
We walk through puddles in rain,
streets of lost and found dreams.
The raindrops dancing on our skin,
our flip flops wet and squishy.
We search and unexpectedly we find,
the charming, casual, Blue Heaven restaurant,
whispering tales of young and old.
The outdoor courtyard enchanting and inviting,
inside we escape the steady rain,
roosters roaming outside, inside lovely ambiance.
We wait and receive our desire,
Key lime pie with delicious mountain
of meringue, indeed a visual feast.
Sweet taste on our lips lingers,
feeds the body and the soul.

Wow! Isn't it great to find a wonderful hidden gem of a restaurant!!ReplyDelete
perhaps my love of that pieReplyDelete

I agree with Leslie. One of the marks of a truly good poem is that it is visual. I could see it all, even without the photo! Now, I'm going the grocery to buy some Key limes and make myself a pie.ReplyDelete
