The view from the pier

Pirates Point pier
looking ahead

Scattered clouds dot the pastel evening sky.
The sun’s last rays paint a light glimmer on the rippling sea.

Behind me, I hear rumbling and see rain.

I choose to look at the sea.
The sky reassures me: “There is a way.”

Sea and sky

Little Cayman: the Sound
Blue and green reverberate inside me.

A slice of Little Cayman from a boat
I close my eyes and I think blue — sky blue and water blue.

Little Cayman seen from a boat
I open my eyes and I remember green.

I will hold this gift of colors close to my heart until I see you again, Little Cayman.
